One of the pleasures of becoming an ‘academic’ when I joined the faculty at Wimbledon College of Art, was the time allocated to Research. This gave me an opportunity to not only continue with my professional practice, but to reflect upon it and analyse, followed by opportunities to disseminate my learning. This has led to presentations both nationally and internationally, including my contributions to the Society of British Theatre Designers exhibitions.
