– Show off your hidden artistic side

– Develop new techniques for pushing you art work to new heights

Some background…

As an Associate Lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University for the MA and BA courses in Illustration I give lectures, workshops and classes on Illustration, Art History, Contemporary Art, Creativity and how to get started with digital workflows. Previous talks include: Working Digitally at Bologna Children’s Book Fair, Artists and International Residencies at Brussels Art Fair, Frieze Art Fair and in Milan. I’ve also given many talks on individual artists and contemporary art in all sorts of venues such as Camden Art Centre and the Delfina Studio Trust. Occasionally I offer workshops for children and families, the most recent being a super fun ‘Planet Plasticine‘ event at ELCAF Comic Fair in East London 2019, where we used plasticine to make stop motion movies.

Please contact me to discuss your event, school visit, or any other teaching opportunity to which I might apply my passion and experience.
