Personal profile


I am a filmmaker with specific interests in Artists’ Film & Video, and in documentary production. I continue my personal practice, and freelance work, alongside teaching commitments at the University. 

My work is included in collections at the Arts Council & BFI, and selected works are distributed by LUX. Work was included in the ‘Shoot, Shoot, Shoot: British Avant-Garde Film 1966 – 1975’ exhibition at Tate Modern, which subsequently toured internationally. A personal retrospective was exhibited at the Norwich Gallery in 2006.
