My Approach:

Through my workshops I hope to share my enthusiasm for nature whilst at the same time help develp the participant’s knowledge of and appreciation for the wildlife around them. I am passionate about teaching children new ways of expressing themselves and my workshops aim to do just that.

My technique of using photography, drawings and painted elements allow me to demonstrate a wide variety of art-making skills. By using these techniques, the final outcomes by the children are both unique and well considered.

I use all my experience as a practicing artist to make sure my workshops are both exciting and engaging. Children are much more alert and focused when they are given something practical to do and my workshops will allow them to experience this theory and develop their communicational skills in equal measure!
