Personal Description:

I am a Theatre Stage and Costume Designer (M.A. graduated in 2004), and have been in practice for 19 years.
I worked in different theatre productions as Stage and Costume Designer and Puppet Maker.
For the last six years I have working as a sculptor. My works have been displayed in exhibitions of Royal Society of British Artists, The Society Women Artists, Cork Street Open Exhibition and others.
In the past year, I have worked as a stage and costume designer for seven theatre productions.

Teaching Experience:

I have 20 years experience teaching painting, drawing, sculpture and crafts making to individuals and groups.
My teaching experiences are:
- group art lessons for children from 4-12 years old
- Individual art lessons any age, including GCSE, Alevel and University
- Leading group university workshops
I have experience in supporting pupils in GCSCE and Alevel art projects, aiding with composing sketchbook, and coming up with ideas for exam final pieces. My previous pupils have achieved no lower than A* or A in art alevel and GCSE. In addition, I have experience in preparing portfolios for application to art scholarships, as well as preparing the students for scholarship interview questions.
Furthermore, I help compose portfolio for university and art school applications, with my students passing interviews and gaining offers for art/design based subjects, at universities such as Sheffield, Edinburgh, Oxford Brookes and the Bartlett School of Architecture (UCL).

I can tutor you in a range of media, including
- painting: watercolour, ink, acrylic, oil
- mixed media and collage
- puppet making: paper-mache, foam puppets,
- ceramics/ sculpture
-model making: stage model making, model making to scale, architectural model making

Teaching Approach:

My approach is flexible and tailored to suit the individual's specific requirements. Usually I approach teaching with encouragement - my priority is to ensure students feel comfortable, and are able to open up creatively, which consequently leads to excellent academic achievements.
