Based on the beautiful Solway Coast I am an artist predominantly working with drawing and textiles but I enjoy experimenting with a wide range of media. Alongside my own practice I have a strong participatory practice, working with a range of groups in a variety of settings.
I am passionate about art and about getting people involved in the arts. I am an experienced workshop leader and I love being able to use my creativity to enable people to develop, both artistically and personally. My main aim when teaching is to encourage people to find their own voice and to give them skills they need to share that voice through their work. I enjoy the challenge of adapting my approach to the people I'm working with and I like finding new ways of sharing my skills to help others develop theirs.
I have designed and developed a wide range of arts and crafts workshops over the years. I aim to offer sessions that are fun and that enable people to develop their skills and confidence in a supportive, friendly environment.
