Art in the community
I am a practising Artist, qualified Secondary School Art Teacher, Community Worker and Event Organiser. I am passionate about painting and drawing and work on different scales from personal work to commissions. Seascapes inspire me (particularly Skye and Scillies) and I have sold work in galleries in Cornwall, Bristol and Cardiff.
Art Express is a mobile art centre that is a non – profit making organisation at present but will become a charity this year. I Set up Art Express in 2009 as I am passionate about spreading art to every corner of society and believe that art is just amazing fun and a great tool for communication. It can help in confidence and in raising self–esteem. Art is a great way of relieving stress and can also help with depression and illness. It is also a great way to meet friends by bringing people together and to learn new skills such as drawing, painting, printmaking, felt making, sculpture or anything that people would like to learn. I believe there is no right or wrong in art, good or bad and my vision is to spread art to everyone.
