Art lesson at BSG

Head of Art

My own journey through Art education has taught me that in order to come up with something new, or to develop an idea, one has to be curious and willing to take risks. I believe this attitude is fundamental to success, not just in Art, but education in general and is one we very much try to encourage through Art in our students here.

I completed an Art Foundation at Wimbledon University before obtaining a First Class Honours Degree in Illustration at The University of Portsmouth. Between these years, I worked as a Special Needs Teaching Assistant at a local Primary school, inspiring a passion for working with young people, in an environment where no two days were ever the same. My decision to teach Art took me to Goldsmiths University, where I worked for a year in a selection of very different London schools to develop my own teaching practice, pedagogy and complete a PGCE. Since then, I have worked in several secondary schools teaching pupils from year 7 to 13, relishing the opportunity to teach such a range of ages and abilities.

After growing up in a small town in south-east England I was excited to experience a very different lifestyle and have lived in Guangzhou for a number of years. I am a keen traveller and love to explore different countries, cultures, foods and artworks
