I have taught students from year 9 up to degree level in different approaches to drawing and image making. My approach is hands on and an introduction to different forms of printmaking, drawing, painting, illustration and concepts in art and design backed up by a strong knowledge of art history and movements.
I am an experienced visual artist and teacher with a background in design, illustration and the fine arts. I'm currently a student at the Royal College of Art and previously attended the Royal Drawing and Kingston University where I graduated with a first class degree in Illustration/ animation. I now teach drawing and printmaking sessions with the Royal Drawing School and am a visiting lecturer at Kingston University.
