Person-centred and collaborative. Art, Design and Fashion are subjective, and I encourage and nurture individual creativities, to let each students uniqueness shine through to be the best they can be. To compliment this, I have 20 years experience in a difficult and competitive industry, so encourage honest self appraisal and realism

I met Claire through the music scene and she always stood out for her incredible sense of fashion and originality. She's also got the most outgoing personality which makes her approachable. She's a fun, sassy and energetic character, who not only has got the skills, talent and expertise, but embraces it as a way of life.
Claire is one of the most genuine, funny and talented people in my friends circle. We met through our love of music and found out that as well as both being creatives, we share the same birthday! Claire is an accomplished designer, having worked for internationally famous brands, but is down to earth and I am confident that all facets of her experience and personality will make her an excellent tutor.
Claire is the sister of one of my old school teachers and is an excellent and outgoing person who has inspired me. She has shown me that a small town girl can go on to achieve bigger and better things which is hard to believe coming from a rural area. I sincerely wish her all the best in her new career path and that she keeps on inspiring younger people like she has me. A wonderful person who anyone deserves to have as a tutor.
