I belief in art and design as a vehicle to self empowerment, improvement and remediation. The position of the expert and a novice is a misguided and arrogant take on life and teaching since art teaches as all continuously and in most surprising ways. The role of the tutor is to facilitate a safe avenue for expression and dialogue.
Initially trained as an Occupational Therapist, later as a architectural designer and qualified builder and more recently as a parent , scout leader and a Fine Art student with prizes, I have been involved in collaborations, commissions and teaching for 30 years. Working in diverse locations and with, clients, people with disabilities and children in individual, family, group and community theater projects.
