Throughout my career, working at a senior level in both UK and International education systems including China, India, Korea, Taiwan and Japan, the experiences have driven and informed my commitment to inclusivity and cultural diversity and its essential place within Art Education. In my current role as the Head of Programme for the Graduate Diploma in Art and Design at the Royal College of Art, I continue to develop courses and learning strategies to enable students from a range of prior learning backgrounds achieve their full potential.
