About the Tutor:
I have been teaching art and design – mostly painting and drawing – to adults since 2007, both through Norfolk Adult Education Service and privately. I have also practiced as a self-employed artist since graduating from my art degree in 2002, having solo exhibitions, and taking part in group shows mostly in Norfolk, but also in Cambridge, Birmingham and London. My drawing and painting is mainly figurative.
