About Me

 

 

 

I have been an artist, art teacher & designer for over the past 30 years and have had many years of experience in taking various art groups, classes and workshops with children through to adults.

During this time I have been employed in various positions associated with children from Art Teaching in Schools, Ceramic painting workshops where I was employed for a variety of years and also running courses for Homeschoolers.

 

 The aim of these classes is to develop children's creativity and teach them various forms of art techniques and styles. 

The classes consist of a variety of practical lessons that can range anywhere from drawing to sculpture. My goal is that whilst children are improving their skills and art techniques in the classes, they will also learn to express themselves and create their own individual forms of artwork thus increasing their confidence, sense of self and creativity.

 

 My goal for all my students is for them to experience a variety of different techniques and mediums. Whilst encouraging them to explore their own creativity and be inspired with exciting and stimulating lessons.
