I am a professional artist with many years experience teaching and looking after children of all ages and abilities. I have a caring and supportive nature and enjoy spending time with children. I am energetic, positive and very capable and am confident in caring, looking after, amusing and occupying lots of different personalities. I enjoy a healthy lifestyle and regularly swim, cycle and run. I have a degree in Design Communication and a Masters in Art. I am English born and grew up in Dorset and I have just relocated to Kings Langley after living and teaching in Dorset, Australia and Laos. I love to travel and have visited 36 countries. At present I am studying a TEFL course and working on a series of paintings which I would like to enter into some of the London art competitions and galleries. I am looking for work as a nanny or babysitter and I can also offer basic housekeeping, administrative duties and private tutoring in art related fields.
My experience includes working as a full-time nanny, babysitter and teacher running workshops in art and craft. I have worked with children of all ages and abilities including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, special needs, English as their second language and home-schooled children. For the past 2 years I have been working in a voluntary role as Purbeck Young Artists (PYA) coordinator. PYA is part of the annual Purbeck Art Weeks Festival and exists to promote and celebrate the arts among young people. My role was to run workshops at 21 schools around the Purbeck area and co-ordinate the final exhibition on behalf of the young artists. Whilst Living in Laos I was the resident artist of i:cat gallery, Vientiane, Laos. Part of this program involved sharing my artist practice and skills to students studying at Vientiane International School. I also taught private workshops from my studio in art and craft to students aged 3-18yrs. During my time in Dorset I have had an active role in looking after my two lively nieces aged 7 and 3 – a very fulfilling and fun time. I have a current DBS.
10 GCSEs, Degree in Design Communications. Masters in Art.
