2007 -2017 Founder and Co- Director of spacetocreate arts

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.
