I am an art and design teacher and artist based in Hull. An experienced educator, I have delivered a wide range of courses to L1 – L4 students for 18 years. Subjects taught include Fine Art, Graphic Design, Illustration, Photography, Animation, Theory, English and TEFL.

Before starting my career in education I enjoyed a diverse career, including work as an Employment Law legal representative an Anti Poverty and benefits caseworker, a TEFL teacher, a commercial designer and a photographer. I am qualified at the Masters Degree level and have studied at Leeds, Cambridge, Hull and Roehampton Universities reading Fine Art, Art and Design Theory, Psychotherapy and Education.

Outside of college, I love my creative practice and currently focus on sound recording, digital overdrawing, photography, film and conceptual research. Other passions include music, travel, food and being with friends and family.
