All kinds of people seek tutoring: HSC students, mature-aged students re-entering study, international students studying in Australia for the first time, practitioners updating their skills and knowledge and art lovers wanting individual instruction. Students seek support for a wide range of reasons:

  • While you work confidently in the studio, the associated written tasks are more challenging.
  • With English your second language, you’d like support managing your course requirements.
  • You’ve entered visual art from another field and are unfamiliar with its processes, conventions and terms.
  • You’re undertaking a performance, photography or video project but your training is in another medium.
  • You’re bursting with ideas and need help structuring a project framework.

Are you seeking tutoring to establish a framework for an HSC body of work? Now is a great time to meet up – it allows time to explore possible developments without too much pressure.
I can help with all aspects of creative studio projects and/or the associated written tasks.

How does it work and what does it cost?

My teaching strengths lie in providing warm support and clear communication to help you identify, articulate, research, develop and realise your creative studio interests. I back up my holistic, intuitive approach with practical problem-solving and setting realistic goals.


My exhibition practice encompasses photography, video, performance, prints, textiles and installation. Depending on your needs, I can advise on theoretical research, key terms and contexts, digital and analogue photographic materials and techniques, project planning, exhibition-quality printing and exhibition design and installation.
