I enjoyed teaching Art, Design and Photography in England for eight years and have been working with young people in a range of educational and social settings for most of my working life.
I believe that Art and culture help to build diverse communities and improve our quality of life. Throughout my career I have developed an engaging curriculum that offers a broad range of practical skills, informed by excellent examples of Art and Design from a variety of socio-cultural and historical contexts. Alongside a passion for drawing and using traditional media, I feel that it is important to teach students specialist digital skills to prepare them for the world outside and beyond the classroom.
I am a practising artist and ultimately want to inspire students to share my enthusiasm for the visual arts. Young people should be empowered to question and understand the world through a rich and varied Art and Design curriculum.
