Kirsty can offer a very diverse range of visual arts projects and specialises in drawing, painting, mixed media and printmaking. She enjoys the challenge of responding innovatively to briefs and brings to each project a unique response informed by a decade of teaching A-Level at the outstanding Sir John Deane’s College, Northwich. She is adept in creating bespoke projects to suit the individual and differentiating them to suit different levels of ability and requirements.
Kirsty has also taught Photography to a very high level and can offer introductory courses as well as more advanced programmes. She is very experienced in studio lighting, Photoshop and Camera Raw. Developing ideas through lens based media to inform a personal body of work is a particular strength. There is much potential in bringing together children’s photography with art and design processes and this is something she could explore across the key stages.
Kirsty has taught GCSE workshops at the Conway centre for a number of years. She has a range of experience working with primary schools delivering workshops and worked with KS2 in an international school setting for 2 years. She has delivered CPD to teachers through the Warrington Teacher’s Network and developed links with partner high schools for Sir John Deane’s. She has created a range of commissions and photographic services for organisations such as Liverpool Women’s Hospital, Manchester Neuro Physio and Interiors of Stockton.
