" Since 2000/2001 I have been working as a freelance artist, running regular adult art sessions "

Since 2000/2001, having gained a City & Guilds Certificate in Teaching, Training and Developement, I have been working as a freelance artist, running regular adult art sessions at:

Museums Sheffield  (including Life Drawing). Currently  ‘The Graves Art Club'  Thursday mornings 11am till 1pm during term time. 

Currently  'Art for the Over 50's'  Monday mornings 10.00 till 12.00 at New Venue: 

**Greenhill Methodist Church, School Lane, Greenhill, S8 7RL (from 9th January 2017)**

Various venues for Sheffield Health & Social Care (NHS Foundation Trust)  Art Therapy sessions for adults with disabilities (up until 2011)

I have also facilitated numerous childrens’ workshops in schools and libraries throughout South Yorkshire and at the Sheffield Art Markets, since joining Yorkshire Arspace in 1998 

In 2000 my friend and fellow artist Anne Mawdsley and I won a 'Drawing Inspiration Award'  from the BIG DRAW, for a project entitled ‘Everyone Can draw a Self-Portrait’. We worked with numerous  groups across all ages and abilities (in schools, out in the community, in adult art groups and with adults with disabilities) culminating in a display of self portraits exhibited in the Showroom Cinema . It was quite an achievement as we had to secure all our own funding.
