Working artist who loves to inspire and be inspired by teaching art

Methodology

My teaching method is based on my own experience, years in art school college and university with the challenge of finding my own style. I am focused on encouraging and building individual strengths and helping the students tap into their own capabilities.

Background

I am a working artist who loves to encourage confidence in all mediums, teach art techniques and help unlock creative ideas. I have experience in portofilios and degree level, secondary and primary as well as adults looking to get back into art or try it for the first time. Art for me is about learning to play and try things.
