Personal Description:

I'm an artist, Art teacher and keen reader from County Down. I see myself as an artist first, which informs my teaching - it's hands on and about making great work!

Since graduating from Art College I have exhibited in the Royal Ulster Academy show and several group exhibitions in local galleries. Having worked in furniture design and restoration, museum art workshops, and primary and secondary schools, I have a wide range of experience as a teacher and practitioner.

Tutoring Experience:

I am a fully qualified and practicing Art & Design teacher, registered with GTCNI (the General Teacher's Council of Northern Ireland). I currently teach Art & Design part time in a seondary school. I also ran an Afterschool club for a primary school for two years and worked in the Ulster Museum delivering ceramics workshops for fold residents.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is always to find out what your needs and interests are and to start from there. If you are feeling stuck for inspiration and direction, we will spend some time loosening up your approach to drawing and finding interesting ways to record and develop sketchbook work quickly.

Although my specialism is in ceramics and sculptural work, I work with and teach a wide range of skills including painting, drawing (expressive and traditional), printmaking, PhotoShop and photography.

If you are interested in studying English Literature, I will work with you through whichever books you are studying or interested in, drawing out key themes, charcterisation and important background information. We will also work on your written language and analytical (comprehension) skills through short, meaningful exercises (and past paper questions if appropriate).
