I enjoy running and being involved in creative workshops.
I have lectured at Edinburgh University and Imperial College London about applying graphic design principles to scientific figures and run a workshop to provide attendees with complementary practical skills. This is a course I have also enjoyed running at the Max Planck Institute in Cologne.
Winchester University also gave me the opportunity to run a workshop for employees looking to develop their illustrative design skills, which had excellent results. I now regularly run drawing workshops as part of the Outreach team.
Working for Cambridge University Press in Kazakhstan as part of the Design and Illustration consultancy team was hugely enjoyable. Our goal was to assist a publishing house in Astana who specialize in producing academic workbooks.
“… the lecture was informative, interesting and refreshing. The workshop session on was a lot of fun and I also found it useful in terms of building my confidence at creating my own figures.”
