Hi I am a fully qualified Teacher and practicing Artists. I graduated from Norwich University College of the Arts, with a Ba Hons 1st Class in Visual studies (2009). I was also awarded the Principles Award for outstanding work. I am currently appointed as Preferred Core Practitioner at the Sainsbury Centre and regularly work with school and colleges across the County. I was lucky enough to jointly win the Yorkshire Sculpture Parks Education Bursary 2011-2012. I enjoy working with individuals of all abilities and age groups who are interested in Art. Fine art, Photography, Sculpture, Installations and pretty much anything else "arty"! Contact me to discuss your project, your hopes and where you would like your art to go! Happy to give "crits" and one off tutorial sessions for those who may have got "stuck"! Look forward to hearing from you

Firstly to get to know student and their aims, hopes and ambitions with their work. Secondly to establish the range of the tutoring required i.e. is this a one off session because of a particular issue, or is this an ongoing coaching and tutoring need that may take place over time.
To work with student to research background to study and contextual references, to engage in discussions concerning visual language, to support student in creation of new work or to extend initial ideas and sketches.
