I am the founder of The Primary Art Class, I am an artist, art teacher, primary art consultant & advocate for art in education.
I have close to two decades of classroom experience and have held Leader of Art roles in both primary and secondary schools in the state and private sector, including for large Academy chains. I have a fine Art degree and competence in a range of practical skills. In my teaching I have been consistently rated as 'outstanding' in all areas and I currently have a well-respected, part-time classroom practice, in addition to the work I do with The Primary Art Class.
As well as working directly with schools, my consultancy and advocacy work has included articles on the Guardian Teacher Network, blogposts for organisations such as Rescue Our Schools, CPD events and work with BBC Learning. I am available for all types or primary art education related input.
