Senior Lecturer and Programme Leader
I've taught on Architecture, Fine art and Foundation studies. I also specialise in pastoral care and tutorials for students.
I specialise in teaching drawing and colour, as well as fine art, painting, 3D studies and printing/traditional etching.
I have set up a life drawing room in the school that is used across all disciplines. I nurture students to learn how to think for themselves and to have the confidence to express themselves without having to categorise themselves with cliches.I enjoy seeing students grow and develop. During lock down I taught Life drawing online this was very interesting. I worked in a way that helped students to relax and able to focus on the drawing thus creating not only lovely work but a feeling of well being. That meant the work was honest and energy was not wasted on an inner critical voice.
I Have had several exhibitions in a Gallery in central London. I have been in several films about artists and their practise
I have exhibited at the Royal Academy regularly and at the National Portrait Gallery.
