I am a qualified Art Teacher with a Bachelor of Education (Art) so am very aware of the need for teachers & students to have resources to help develop both their own artwork & classroom resources.
So a few years ago I created a new website. Essentially it is a compilation of most the art related posts from this blog. Whilst this blog rambles around talking about my artwork – linocuts, drawings etc, I also meander through posts about my garden, life & other things. As the title says it is an Art Studio Diary but it can be hard to find information on a topic with posts in some sort of order other than date.
Hopefully this resource can be helpful to teachers, students & parents. I have run workshops for schools, adults & children over the years. I will over time add some of these workshops & tutorials.
I have a youtube channel with videos about how I create a few of my artworks. This also will be added to over time.
My Instagram is full of images & videos of my current works in progress.
