As well as working as a professional artist I also have 20 years experience of working as an arts educator, lecturer and tutor. I have worked with a diverse range of groups in schools, colleges, galleries and day care centres for the homeless and elderly. Community based art has always been an intergral part of my practice as an artist. Many of the projects I have worked on have invloved using art in education as a tool for motivating , empowering, developing skills and exploring issue's relevant in today's society.
