I gained a MA in Education (2010) and PGCE (2008) from the Institute of Education, University of London, and I am DBS checked.

Freelancing and museum education
I have taught art to older people, adults, young people and children in museums and art galleries, where often the institution’s collections and exhibitions are used as inspiration. I’ve led in-person and online creative workshops exploring how to draw using traditional and digital media and model-making techniques at cultural organisations such as Engage, Museum of the Home, Sir John Soane Museum, Victoria and Albert MuseumWallace Collection and Watts Gallery.

For 13 years, I led workshops at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), London, teaching adults and children to use technology such as coding, 3D printing and iPad drawing to make art with architecture as the inspiration. In the RIBA’s Explore and Make workshops for over 50s I have been devising and leading art sessions where participants are supported to explore a different media each month in person and online.

Secondary schools
I was formerly a full-time art teacher in schools across London. I have experience teaching all age groups, in particular Key Stages 3 to 5 in the state sector, either working in tandem with other teachers and educators, or leading lessons on my own. The focus of my teaching was art and design, where I would find ways to bring architecture and the work of architects into the classroom. Whilst devising schemes of work and supporting students’ learning, I also oversaw the welfare of my students.
