Personal Description:

I am a experience KS4 and 5 Art and Design Tutor, specialising in Fashion and Textiles.
I currently run a small textiles company producing designer textiles for a homeware collection and also producing an adult colouring book based on the collection. During 2016/17/18 I contributed to the delivery of a project called Makeright with Central Saint Martins, Design Against Crime team in Thameside prison, teaching inmates making and design skills.
Seasonally I work freelance for Pearson as an examiner and moderator for Level 3 Art and Design programmes. I also write and create teacher support packages and assignments for BTEC Design Courses.

Teaching Experience:

I have been an Art and Design Lecturer and Course Tutor at Hackney Community College (now New City College) from May 1997 to Aug 2015. I also taught Textile Design on BTEC Art & Design, Foundation in Art and Design, GCSE and A Level Art and Design and Textiles.
My specialism is Textile Design (print and constructed) with knowledge of a variety of print techniques. I also have vast experience in Art and Design applications at A level and GCSE Art, fashion and photography. This includes; Visual Recording in Art and Design, Ideas and Concepts, Visual Communication, Fashion Presentations Techniques, Exploring Textiles and 3D Sculptural textiles. In my teaching practise I introduce and cover all aspects of contextual study, historic and contemporary to inspire the design process along with practical skills to help extend knowledge and develop design awareness from initial recording of research, experimental drawing for art and design and fashion and textiles. This includes experimental drawing and mark making, artists research, composition, mood boards, encouraging the use of varying medium to inspire and develop personal style. I encourage students to experiment in their sketchbook stop create a narrative that will support final outcomes for assessed work.
I have substantial experience of project and curriculum development and delivery in KS4 and 5. I am currently an examiner, moderator and an assignment writer for teacher support packages.

Teaching Approach:

My aim for every student is to engage, encourage and support. Build confidence, knowledge and know how to achieve the highest grades possible.
