I am a trained handwriting scribe, notetaker and experienced art and drawing tutor.
I've always loved developing my handwriting from exceptionally messy scribbles as a child, to decorative experiments as a teenager.
I have developed autographs and signatures for people in the public eye, and helped those in business to develop more distinctive handwriting.
As an academic manual notetaker and scribe I have years of experience in Higher Education, attending University lectures in any subject, making clear handwritten notes for students who are unable to do so for themselves - perhaps deaf, blind, dyslexic or injured.
I have helped many individuals in handwriting and notetaking techniques, including those who thought their writing was irredeemable!
I have a qualification in manual notetaking - OCN Level 3 Notetaking
I'm a member of the Association of Notetaking Professionals ANP
and the National Handwriting Association NWA
Tutoring, Coaching & Mentoring
I am an experienced and qualified tutor and mentor, and have coached adult learners, students, undergraduates, postgraduates and exoffenders in many aspects of drawing, art, portfolio preparation, creative practice, presentation skills and handwriting.
I am a practising artist in moving image, drawing, photography and sound.
I have an MA fine art (University for the Creative Arts)
and a BA fine art first-class (Middlesex University).
I regularly exhibit, tutor, mentor and produce artist projects.
I'm interested in fine art and psychology research, and am currently completing an Msc psychology (University of Hertfordshire)
