Curriculum Vitae

I am a third year Fine Art degree student. I have taught un-certificated evening classes in drawing and painting skills; run workshops in watercolour techniques and taken part in exhibitions (listed below). I illustrated work in a project called Whalsay Waves produced by the Shetland Arts. An article entitled “Exposed Roots” featuring my work was printed in the Shetland Life magazine.  As well as raising my family, painting and writing, my part time jobs include care taker at the Hanseatic Booth Museum and Youth Worker at the Livister youth club. Before having children I worked full time in the Shetland Times bookshop. I am a keen reader and I am interested in writing. I have completed two creative writing classes in 2009 and several of my poems have been published.
