I am open to giving lessons to anyone who wants to learn within the arts, be this degree level all the way through to primary level. I am very hands on, although interested by the theory of art, I prefer to learn and teach through making and exploring materials, I find this to be more memorable. I am very patient and wont laugh at your ideas, I'll help you and introduce you to new techniques, artists, exhibitions and possible ways of viewing your work and others. We can critique work and it's role within society, or we can simply create. It's entirely up to you!
Currently studying at The Slade, I also have a first class honours degree in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Arts. I have worked as the sole project director securing Arts Council England funding for young children in Cumbria to undertake a photography project within their communities, this included 3 separate schools and 40 students. I have exhibited in Art Dusseldorf, The Freud Museum, given talks in the Tate Modern and of course exhibited within my educational establishments.
Cancellation of a lesson less than 24hrs in advance will result in a payment of £10 to be made.
I am an ideal candidate, suited to the role of tutoring whilst undertaking my Masters of Fine Art course at Slade School of Fine Art, UCL. I have worked extensively with students on youth projects and within schools, the most recent being an Arts Council England funded project where I was the sole mentor and project manager with around 40 students. I am a highly organised and passionate individual who is willing to commit time towards the bettering of young peoples education and knowledge when it comes to the arts. I am easy to talk to and confident in my approach to teaching, I have a magnitude of patience being the oldest of five siblings from a very close family and deal with children well, having somewhat helped raise four of them. I hope I can be considered for this job role as teaching is something I aim to continue after graduation.
My own work is a celebration of people and places – predominantly those of which I have grown up around. The starting point of most of my research is through conversations, my work is my research, a growing archive of the everyday, a physical database of her community and their histories.
As well as sourcing my photographs, films and stories from my home town and surrounding areas, I am keen in the exploration of raw materials from said areas and the utilization of these. Clay has been an important element within my work, it’s unprocessed nature paying homage to the nature of those people I have grown up around. My work also expands to the breadth of photography, more recently using the calcite of a stalagmite found in an aqueduct running under Manchester gifted to my dad from a mate – exploring one of the earliest historical photographic processes by coating paper with said calcite and eventually arriving at photographs embedded deep within the paper. This use of the land being used in the creation of ‘Earth objects’ that are rich in history as well as materiality is inconsistent with art in the contemporary, the use of outdated image processing techniques and the actual cultivating of your own raw materials is an art that I wish to keep alive as well as the stories of people, because of this my work holds weight within contemporary art.

Experience / Projects:
‘West Cumbria Kids’, Arts Council England funded project, 2018 – ongoing.
Documenting youth culture in the ageing town of Silloth, young people photographing their own experience of living in such an alienated place. Developing the film, printing the photographs, curating an exhibition and releasing a book, the kids were introduced – probably for the first time – to the physicality of photography. As well as the photographs being relevant to my work, the process of engaging and working within my community is also an extension of this.
