From a very early age, I have been passionate about art, painting and all things creative. I paint anything, anywhere, from delicate and detailed watercolour images of flowers and plants to enormous whole wall pieces.
Over the years I have taught a range of students (from 4 to 40+) giving me masses of practical experience and also the opportunity to expand my teaching skills from working on small pieces to large works of art, in a variety of media. I have an Honours degree in Education with English Language & Art and hold a current DBS Certificate.
One of my voluntary roles is that of Schools’ Coordinator for the Taunton based creative group, ‘Go Create’, working to promote creative activities on behalf of and for Taunton Live….the summer festival of the creative and performing arts.
During the Coronavirus pandemic, Busylizzie Art has donated both time and resources to a project organised jointly by Go Create CiC and Taunton Rotary UK. This project “In Isolation”, was quickly planned in response to a local positive mental health approach to supporting people through the uncertainty and strange times. It was designed to provide opportunities for community groups and individuals to express themselves through Art whilst still remaining in Isolation.
An addition the role of Busylizzie in 2015, was to work alongside local charity, Stand Against Violence (SAV) as freelance teacher, designing, planning and delivering workshops for Y6 primary school children, which address emotional awareness and awareness of how substances like alcohol can inhibit sensible decision-making.
“Once upon a time”, a brand new, unique resource which I have developed alongside Adam of SAV, and which uses my water colour sketches and illustrations of family life events to tell the story of two brothers growing up, hints at their hopes and dreams for the future and tells the tragic events of a night which cut short everything.
