- Tell me about some of your current students.
I have been so delighted with the progress of my GCSE and A Level Art students and Photography students. Not only have they been delightful to work with, they have also really improved their grades. One girl shifted her A Level Photography grade from D to B in one year. Another GCSE Art student, who was completely at sea when she came to me with a predicted grade of C, achieved an A*, in two terms, which was awesome. I also have some wonderful adult clients, who came to me feeling really stuck, trying to do "good" art, who are now being much more themselves, freeing up, and experimenting with all sorts of media and methods and ideas of personal interest.
