An artist and art educator, I explore the ways in which art can be encountered and experienced. I’m an Arts Award Advisor and run workshops using a variety of media. I create collaborative, large-scale projects to engage and inspire creativity.
Level of Experience as an Artist Educator: Intermediate (3-5 years of working as an artist educator)
I enjoy delivering workshops to both children and adults, enabling them to explore their creativity, take risks and experiment with a variety of media. The workshops are often inspired by a particular artist or movement; enjoyment of the process and engaging with the task is as important as the outcome.
Delivering Indoor/Outdoor Murals as whole-school projects
Mural projects engage each child in the school, both in generating ideas for the design and in the fun of the painting. As we work together on the mural, the children’s pride in their work grows, generating enthusiasm and excitement in this creative, collective process.
Project Management & Collaboration
As a founder member of artist collective XAP, and a former senior manager in an international organisation, I am happy working in multi-disciplinary teams to implement diverse artistic projects – exhibitions, events, symposia – managing budgets, people and publicity. I have successfully applied for funding from Arts Council England.
