I am a scholar of British art, with a primary focus on biblical painting and illustration in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. I have also researched and published on twentieth century ecclesiastical art in England, biblical art from a broader range of locations and periods, and the study of correspondence.
I gained my PhD from the University of Manchester in 2016, and went on to hold research roles at the Diocese of Chichester, King’s College London and the University of Manchester.
My research has been funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the University of Manchester, the Bishop Otter Trust, the Leverhulme Trust and the British Academy, and I have held visiting fellowships at the Yale Center for British Art, Harry Ransom Center and the Library Company of Philadelphia.
I now work in the cultural sector, and continue to write and speak on topics related to my research interests as an independent scholar. I am also a Trustee of the Huguenot Museum.
I enjoy sharing my research with a variety of audiences, and have given talks at venues including the John Rylands Library, West Sussex Record Office, the Whitworth, Winchester Art History Group and the Yale Center for British Art, as well as at academic conferences and seminar series.
This website documents my writing and research, including academic publications, contributions to digital projects, and other writings, such as encyclopædia entries, reports, reviews, and blog posts.
My main areas of research each have a page that details my publications and other outputs relating to that topic, and the Bibliography includes a full list of my publications by type. My publications are also listed on my ORCiD: 0000-0003-2219-109, and some of my author manuscripts and other outputs are available via the British Library Research Repository.
Beyond my primary areas of research, I am involved in a number of research initiatives as a coordinator, consultant or conversation parter, which are outlined in Projects.
If you have questions, comments, or would like me to write or speak for you, please get in touch.
