Over seven years experience working in arts education within printmaking studios providing instructional and technical expertise. During this period I have worked on academic and business partnerships, as creative industry partner and director. My widely acclaimed limited edition prints have sold to an international audience in over ten countries. I have taught as Visiting Lecturer on BA Illustration at the University of The West of England as well as running screen printing workshops at Hamilton House. My particular strengths include screen printing, creative design, communication, project management and digital printmaking technologies.
