Head of Secondary Art and Design

I was born and raised in the South West of England and have spent the majority of my working life living in Torquay Devon. I have a First Class BA (honours) degree in Graphic Design and a PGCE in Art and Design.

I have many successful years of teaching experience having taught Art and Design, Photography and Digital Illustration to the highest standards at KS3/4 and 5, GCSE/A Level and IB Diploma.

I have spent the last 15 years leading extremely successful Expressive arts departments both in the UK and the UAE and am extremely proud of the considerable success and high standards that my students have consistently achieved year on year.

I am a practicing artist myself and have exhibited many of my own pieces at galleries and art exhibitions both here in the UAE and in the UK. Most recently I exhibited my latest collection of work at the ‘World Art Dubai’ show at the World Trade Centre, Dubai in April.

As well as my interest, enthusiasm and passion for the Arts I am a keen sportsman and especially enjoy cycling, surfing, paddle boarding and skiing.

I very much look forward to joining NAS and leading the Art and Design departments to further and sustained success over the coming years.
