Art Workshops for Children

In 2016 I set up MAKING AND MOVING, children's creative art and movement workshops alongside choreographer Chloë Smith, in Berwick upon Tweed. 

Excitingly, we are currently setting up an Arts festival for children in Berwick Upon Tweed, hopefully happening in 2020. Watch this space! 

We run regular workshops during most school holidays.

Demo workshops

Would you like a workshop at your festival or event? 

For children and adults, workshops and live illustration are a great way to get people to engage, interact and have fun. 

I've run workshops for Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival, as well as food festivals, seaside festivals.

Sign up to my mailing list to be informed of new dates.



I have given talks at Creative Careers week at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary art, Gateshead in 2015, 2016, and 2017.

I work as a part time lecturer in illustration and graphic design.

In the past I have given talks on what it's like to be an illustrator, my progression through school, higher education and further education, and how to stay inspired and creative on a daily basis.
