I have a first-class degree in Visual Communication with a specialism in photography. I am a martial artist, musician (drums & percussion) and fully qualified Teacher. I am passionate about education, personal development, and learning for all people; believing that through any form of artistic expression there is potential for self-healing, self-development, positive self-expression and wellbeing.
Originally training as a scientist, Ecologist, while training I discovered a passion for art, realising that Art & Science are two very distinct and different ways of thinking, feeling and being. I am a musician and play double bass, violin, nylon-string guitar and celtic harp. I enjoy writing & publishing and have been involved with many magazines, journals and blogs, also co-writing two books. I have trained as a film & tv producer.
