I'm an Artist Educator sharing my creativity with children and families through arts activites in schools, children's workshops and tuition. I also create my own colourful paintings and regularly show my work at local and national events.
Artist residency at Foxwood Academy, Notts.
Students at Foxwood Academy in Nottinghamshire worked with me to create wonderful Carnival inspired art to take to the Hemlock Happening event in June 2015. We were very proud of our colourful creations and enjoyed sharing them with schools across the county.
The Belper Arts Festival - 2015
As part of the community based Belper Arts festival, I shared two days of children's workshops inspired by pirates. Activities included make a pirate flag, float a boat, pick and mix painted pirate pebbles and huge shared doodle art. It was fantastic, messy pirate art for all! Ooo arr!

Creative Space is an art club for children in primary school to explore and enjoy their creativity. We've had a busy time at Curbar Primary school and Grindleford Primary School over the past year. Our projects have included painting, clay work, self portraits, fabrics, outdoor art, sketchwork, sculpture, crafts and an outdoor mural.
