Maker's bio

As a freelance artist and qualified arts teacher (for over 25 years) I still work within the learning departments of many London based Museums and Galleries, schools, and charities, from the V&A to the Museum of London, AgeUK to Thomas Pocklington Trust supporting blind and partially sighted students. I develop, design and create various art based classes, workshops and courses. In the last 8 years I have also been running my own private Watercolour Courses - these run one day a week at Wanstead House E11...and since all the lockdowns I have also managed to squeeze in some mini online classes too! Relaxation through Art is a personal practise that I have been developing and teaching for over 10 years, with an aim to exploring different ways to manage stress with a variety of simple yet stimulating art exercises which you can learn and practise in your everyday life. Open to all levels and abilities. Contact me for further information and any collaboration work. I am always happy to chat.
