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.
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.
I enjoy working in a creative environment and encouraging creativity in others. I have strong interpersonal skills, am organised and efficient and have a friendly demeanour. I consider myself hard working, reliable and confident, a good communicator
I love working with children and believe in children’s capacity to make great art.

•Colville Nursery School art Teacher Apr-2001 to July-2004
I worked as an assistant nursery school teacher as well as the main art teacher at Colville nursery from 9am to 3pm daily. This included basic teaching skills for other subjects,
interacting with and encouraging children’s imagination as well as creating projects for them to make art and learn basic art and making skills. Quite often it was enough to just keep them tuned into the activity, with this age group the doing was as important if not more than the end results.
