About me


My experience relates extensively to supporting young children's development of curiosity, open-ended thinking, creativity, skills and abilities in visual art and storytelling as the basis for developing all other learning and understandings. I have worked with children and alongside young families throughout all of my professional life, and encouraged them to engage with the world and each other through art. I use art and artists as a lens through which children can form new understanding of the world.
