I am the art subject Leader at The Mead Community Primary School and have worked at the Mead for 3. I qualified as a primary teacher in 2004 after spending 10 years working in Theatre responsible for costumes on West End shows.

Art is my passion and I feel that every child should be taught basic skills and be given wonderful opportunities to express themselves visually using the Arts. I feel confident to offer a range of support to schools including helping in developing an art basic scheme of a work that shows progression across year groups. Leading INSET in display to develop whole school displays which are creative and innovative. I can also help with the professional development of staff in delivering art, the use of sketch books and developing creative and innovative art projects for whole school or year groups, using the work of artists as starting points.

I am working with RIO to deliver development days for schools that are in the process of applying for the Artsmark award.
