I am a London born artist working in sculpture, installation, drawing, collage, painting and photography. I have an MA from Goldsmiths and studied my sculpture degree at The University of Arts London, resulting in a diverse, high quality art education. I love to teach and encourage creative expression and experimentation.
Last year I was an artist in residence at BLANK Studios in Brighton, working with other sculptors and exhibiting our installation work. I run JUXTA: Creative Connections, a meetup group for artists, designers and creatives in Brighton and beyond.
I have been a personal tutor for art and design, particularly for children and in preparation for exams and portfolio presentations. Before that I have extensive english teaching experience both in groups and 1:1 contexts.
I recently designed and led a series of workshops at the International Festival of Art and Design in Spain with participants of 16 - 19 year old international art and architecture students and I offered one to one tutorials. As part of the Blank Sands exhibitions we offered art workshops where participants could experiment with materials to create sculptural works in response to the exhibition and then exhibit.
When I started teaching, I immediately enjoyed facilitating students to learn and improve their self-confidence and prospects. I also have experience tutoring a child with significant learning disabilities as well as assisting with vulnerable workshop participants.
To provide group support for creative freelancers and artists, I have recently set up a Creative Meetup group in Brighton. I have initiated the principles of Action Learning and members comment that the group inspires and motivates them to initiate and progress with their creative projects and they enjoy the community support. Through this group, I have enhanced my skills in managing group dynamics and creating positive communications.
Art is a combination of personal expression with the technical skills to visualise your ideas. It is experimentation and play.
Developing in art requires practising skills but equally inspiration, enjoyment and building of confidence. Creativity is within everyone and we all have our unique ways of seeing and expressing the world. I encourage students to experiment, explore and re-invent so the student can find their own voice and visual languages.
I use a variety of medium and scales in paint, found materials, collage, drawing materials, clay, print, wood and anything else that you want to work with. I am experienced in figurative art, such as still life and life drawing and more abstract and contemporary art and design. My current practice focuses on the body relations with architecture.
Using a sketchbook or scrapbook is an essential element to developing an aesthetic language and gaining inspiration and I can help guide in assembling visual research, notes and drawings and developing portfolios for applications.
I can assist in guiding you to art opportunities, community support, funding and awards.
