 Artist Educator
 Artist.  I work as a freelance artist.  I record the world around me in a sketchbook.  Some things happen  quickly, like a sun setting, a person running, then it's time to speed up, but its still possible to capture anything if you want to. My studio is full of sketches! 

On a larger scale I explore colour more deeply with pastels -  the colours are vivid and immediate and it's  exciting to throw new contrasts into a picture plane.  And when I draw I'm able to notice nature around me more clearly. 


 For  many years I've worked as a teacher in schools, for English, Art, Dyslexia and SEN, alternating with periods as a freelance artist, freeholder, and story illustrator .   However the interface of creativity and school became increasingly rather ragged  -  such pressure on outcomes and exams.  I qualified as Wellbeing Practioner, using drama, theatre and music as well as art in my practice. 
Ive been interested in and worked in the area of
Dyslexia for a long time and am developing resources for this.

 I find the creative space that's on my  own terms - without undue influence from advertisers or convention.   For murals I rely a lot on memory, preparing in a sketchbook before turning to the wall for focus on the new work.
