I`m a confident communicator and problem solver and tailor tuition to the needs of the client. Having been tutoring for several years, I can support you both academically and emotionally and have a working knowledge of the current art climate.
I`ve worked as a professional carnival and community artist for over 10 years in festivals and events and have been more recently working in the realm of fine art.
My first degree was in Fine Art at Liverpool John Moores University, where I specialised in sculpture and installation. In 2015 I qualified with a Postgraduate Diploma in Art Therapy and at the UK`s founding institute: The University of Hertfordshire.
I am able to work with all ages and abilities, and have experience working with a range of additional needs as both a tutor and a trainee therapist.
