I am a visual artist with a background as a professional dancer. I have ten years’ experience teaching creative learning through the mediums of art, design and movement. I have academically trained in the main disciplines of art and have theatrically trained in dance. Through different professional positions, I have helped young people and children understand their own creative abilities. I have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, am fully CRB checked and adaptable to working in different environments. I genuinely enjoy watching a child’s imagination go wild and working with like-minded people. 2012 - 2014 MA Fine Art, Central Saint Martins, London, UK 2010 - 2011 BA Fine Art [First Class Hons], Centre for Creative Arts and Media Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology, Ireland 2007 - 2010 BA Art and Design, Centre for Creative Arts and Media, Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology, Ireland.

Through my competitive career, I won numerous titles as well as continually qualifying to dance at World Championship level.
