Curriculum Vitae

My career as Artist, Photographer and Teacher has led me beyond schools and out into the community where I have founded collectives, worked with local galleries and organisations running CPD workshops for art teachers, tried to connect art departments across boroughs to encourage a spirit of communication, collaboration and sharing with the core purpose of ensuring the highest quality of delivery and experience of Art and Design education for both teachers and pupils. I believe that a commitment to continual learning is necessary in any art practice and that this learning needs to be nurtured alongside creativity in order to continually reinvigorate and incentivise us to continue to create.
