Welcome to the Art Room

Autumn at the Art Room

All change again at The Art Room!

I have some exciting news coming soon!


Following further restrictions due to the COVID pandemic I am still unable to get back to teaching classes at my usual venues. Join my mailing list, check out facebook or look at my online classes provision for the most up to date info.

This month I am teaching Saturday art classes for kids, teens and tweens, Tuesday watercolour classes for adults and some new exciting textiles zooms for Sunderland Culture.

Hello and welcome to my website all about The Art Room.

What is it all about?

I am an art teacher that creates a POP UP art room at various schools, community groups, cafes, CICs, collages, art galleries..... in order to teach a range of art and craft lessons. I love learning and I love creating. Those are my 2 passions in life and 'The Art Room' helps me to pass on my knowledge and experience to new artists young and young at heart.

A little about me......


After studying fine art and design and technology at University, I went on to do my teacher training qualifications (QTS). I have been teaching in primary and secondary schools for close to 15 years now and recently moved over to teach in art galleries and museums too as well as schools and my studio. I absolutely love my subject, I love teaching and I love the north east of England which is why I have opened up the Art Room in Sunderland. I am also a primary school governor and part of the steering group for PATERN - the Primary Arts Teacher and Educator Regional Network.

I have enhanced DBS, Qualified Teacher Status and the relevant insurances. Get in touch and let me know how we can work together!
