I am an artist, educator and youth worker with many years of experience in a variety of different settings. As a mixed media and multi disciplinary artist my wide ranging skills enable me to assist learners in establishing a creative approach to their education, embracing adaptable skills that link in with many aspects of the educational curriculum.
I have experience of consultation, planning and running both long and short term projects with youth and community groups.
With a back ground in Illustration and Fine art I have been able to initiate projects linking in skills such as character design, mixed media collage, photoshop, sculpture, painting, drawing and other traditional crafts to assist in the development of numeracy, literacy and IT skills as well as enhancing the understanding of diversity, citizenship, sustainable development and environmental protection.
I currently teach life drawing, still life and portrait classes through arts4all.wales as well as one to one portfolio sessions for secondary school students. I am also responsible for the coordination of the Oriel Lliw Gallery, Pontardawe on behalf of Arts in the Tawe Valley, meaning I have specific curating and gallery management experience suitable for the enhancement, documentation and display of project work.
