"Every artist was first an amateur – Ralph Waldo Emerson
The Art and Design disciplines encapsulate powerful reaction, an array of professions and individual creativity globally and have always been a huge passion of mine. Curiosity and confidence in ideas and processes combined with a critical awareness of context enables students to reflectively grow and learn in a challenging yet stimulating and supportive environment. As an avid photographer, I am also keen to develop graphics and later, art photography, within my lessons to further engage and develop students in a multi-disciplinary setting and learn how to work to a brief. The arts are crucial in our society and I am incredibly excited to be a part of the team at Harris Academy Wimbledon and begin to prepare for our first cohort of ‘artists in training’ in September."
