Having trained in Multidisciplinary Arts and Illustration in Sheffield and
Falmouth, I later undertook teacher training in Sheffield and foundation level
art therapy CPD in Truro, Derby and Dubai. After more than 10 years working across the curriculum in the UK and overseas, in primary, secondary schools, FE colleges and informal learning environments, I now specialise in community
arts, literacy and well-being. I’ve facilitated craft activities in sheltered housing, creative TEFL classes for adult learners (multi-faith nationalities, including asylum seekers/refugees), and bespoke SEND arts activities (now also
via Zoom). I really care about creating a happy, comfortable space for each participant to experiment at their own pace, be creative in their own way and gain confidence. In my free time, you can find me drawing & making, gardening, eachcombing, immersing myself in the natural world, music, foreign films, and visiting galleries. Travel has given me a lifelong love of
people, culture, history and languages.
