I have been a teacher of Art, Photography & Textiles for over 20 years. My experience spans secondary, further and primary Education.

Norfolk County Council ‘Artist for Learning’

Science, Art and Writing Trust - one of the key artists delivering science inspired projects in Norfolk schools

From 2002 - 2016 I established a thriving and unique Art Project with the aim of promoting excellence in Art and extending children’s potential at Rockland St Mary, Surlingham, Alpington & Cringleford Primary Schools in Norfolk.

Broadening the Art Curriculum and ideas about Art and Design at Primary level, the aim was to introduce a wide spectrum of ideas to challenge and inspire children from Reception to KS2 all working together in mixed groups. At the end of each school term all groups came together to exhibit their work in a formal exhibition for families, friends and the local community. I believe this was one of the only Art Projects in Norfolk exhibiting and celebrating Childrens’ Art.
