An award-winning author of fifteen books I was, until recently, Professor of Architecture at Cardiff University but am now a Visiting Professor in the School of Art and Design at Cardiff Metropolitan University. I have exhibited on several occasions in the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition and my work has been published in numerous magazines in the UK and abroad. I work with two part-time assistants Rosie Blatchford, a photographer, and Stephanie Spowart, a textile designer.
