Life before Stowe
I was in charge of teaching A Level Art at Magdalen College School, Brackley.
What do you enjoy most about your subject?
It is so rewarding because it is the most open ended, creative subject possible, capable of relating to all other areas of subject matter. By the time that you begin to relate this to the interests of a developing individual then you really do have the most wonderful potential for one of the most exciting jobs in teaching.
What do you enjoy most about Stowe?
Stowe is an idyllic environment in which to teach Art. The view when you look through the front door onto the South Front reminds you of nothing short of Arcadia.
What is your favourite Lesson?
When individuals develop their particular interest with such conviction that they experience and share something of my own excitement and passion for Art.
What do others say about you?
I hope they see me as enthusiastic, knowledgeable and encouraging. Someone who sees and looks for the best side in most people.
The arts generally. A strong attachment to South Gloucestershire and Bristol where I grew up.
