I’m a research student in the History of Art department at Birkbeck, University of London, working on the histories of closed museums. On this blog I mostly write about museums, although in the archives you’ll also find writing about art and art history.
I also work for Birkbeck’s Mapping Museums project and as Museums Researcher on the AHRC-funded project UK Museums during the COVID-19 crisis: Assessing risk, closure, and resilience, also at Birkbeck, that runs from 2021 to 2022.
I completed an MA in art history and museum studies at Birkbeck, and before that trained as a painter at the City and Guilds of London Art School. My paintings and prints are in a number of private collections and I have also worked to commission.
