As an artist, I am uncompromisingly passionate about my work. This is equally true whether occupied with my own projects, or teaching others art history and technique. My own work involves multiple disciplines from large-scale social projects to drawing, sculpture and design. When teaching although I draw on some of my own experience as an artist, I also make use of my knowledge as a fine art graduate and professional educator. I work with students to develop their imagination, creativity, and confidence so that they can progress in whatever direction best matches their interests and talents.
This blog was created with the intention to give my honest, straightforward, informed opinion about the art galleries, collections and museums I have visited. I also love castles, stately homes and gardens – so you can expect them to feature too.
Some of the content draws on my own training and interests as an artist – for example my love of architecture, furniture design, and the Pre-Raphaelites. Other comments will be more practical – is it child friendly; wheelchair-friendly; and just how good is the cheesecake?
