I’m mummy to a gorgeous little boy and a qualified professional artist and creative practitioner who has worked with children, young people and adults in a variety of settings in the education and community environments since 2007. I also work as a digital media artist specialising in photography and film.

I’m passionate about creativity and love to share my experience and nurture children to be inspired in whatever they would like to explore!
