I am a qualified teacher (PGCE and working towards HEA fellowship) with many years experience teaching art and illustration to all levels of experience, from preschool to degree level.
My areas of expertise are picture books and printmaking.
I offer one hour tutorials (online) if you would like detailed feedback and guidance on a picture book project and I can offer a discount if you would like a block of tutorials over a period of time whilst you develop a project. I have completed training in inclusive picture books and can also offer feedback with inclusion in mind.
I am also available to run (in-person) workshops within London.
