MA Fine Art provides a natural progression for a career as a Practising Artist, Curator, Exhibition Organiser, Arts Administrator, and Art Education. Students may also choose to progress to PhD level.

I’m currently working on painting and performance projects for the Zodiak Gallery, Ontario. I’m hosting the exhibition which includes 11 other artists from the city. Earlier in the year my textile prints and typographic work were exhibited in a show ‘Typematters’ at the The Muckenthaler Cultural Center in California. I live in Orangeville, Southern Ontario where it’s possible to have a large studio space and do all the various types of creative that interest me.

My new job as Education Outreach Officer for the Arts at the University of Essex involves creating tailored events for students, schools pupils and families. My role is two days in a week and in addition I work as an Outreach Assistant for Smiths Row, a Contemporary Art Gallery. I plan and deliver sessions for children and adults with additional needs. I’ve also be contracted as an artist to provide a series of workshops for The Mix – a new creative arts centre. And I keep my studio up and take part in exhibitions and residencies.
