T E A C H I N G / A D M I N I S T R A T I O N

I am passionate about sharing skills and facilitating other peoples' creativity, which has led me towards work in the wider community, both in the area of education (with all age groups and at all levels) and as an Arts Administrator. This work had enriched my own practise and kept a balance in my creative life.
