I am a Derbyshire-based, practising artist and art tutor. I have many years of experience working with educational establishments and groups such as schools (primary & secondary), art societies, art galleries and museums, residential care homes, homeless hostels, hospitals and within mental health and special needs facilities.

I have a degree in textile design, and a masters from Central St Martins in Communication Design / Illustration. I remain passionate about my subject and enjoy sharing skills and knowledge with others.

I am interested in collaborating with other disciplines such as storytelling, music, science and dance. My workshops (run and developed by myself over 23 years), are devised to promote safe practice, develop communication skills and provide a rounded understanding of Art and Design.

I have a love of natural history and enjoy gardening and walking my dog.
