1988-89   L’ Ecole De Beaux Arts, Poitiers, France

1985-88   Middlesex Polytechnic, BA Fine Art (Honours) 1st Class

In addition to my practice I have set up and run artists studio’s for several years in southeast London, curated several exhibition and coordinated arts events. I established two project spaces St Paul’s House Project space and the Extractor Space. The aim of the Extractor Space was to invite artists to test ideas during a short  residency, which cumulates in a public presentation.
