Professional profile
As a professional artist and researcher, I have a wealth of experience and transferable skills gained as a maker
over a 30-year period. I am committed to delivering excellence within workshops that I tutor, working in many mediums; clay, silversmithing, metal work, stained glass and mosaic. My workshops always produce amazing results not only for the item created but on a wellbeing level. There is always a challenge, and this is were I shine, to engage, encourage and guide participants to overcome obstacles and barriers in order to complete the project and achieve their goal.
