My personal primary art practice is painting, alongside photography, ceramics, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, photograph.My skills and experience in the visual arts both support the health and well-being of the child and places creativity at the centre of embedding children's learning across the curriculum.
See examples of a diverse portfolio of visual/media arts projects with children at primary and secondary schools on the website links below:
Skills: self- expression, exploration, taking risks, using the imagination - placing an emphasis on "process" as much as outcome.
Workshops: Experiential Painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture workshops aimed to enhance both teachers and children's learning in numeracy, literacy, questioning skills/challenging conventions, making inventive connections, imagining, reflecting critically on ideas, actions and outcomes.
