Hello! I have been in London since 2010 when I moved to study my MA at University of Art London, Camberwell in Visual Arts. I have over 12 years’ experience of teaching Art at various levels whilst continuing my own artistic practice in sculpture, printmaking and installation. I have had the opportunity to exhibits regularly within the London and the South East of England as well as having had prints shown at the Hong Kong Graphic Arts Fiesta.
I also lead adult education classes, which I have done for around 10 years, helping adult learners to discover and incorporate print making processes into their own individual lines of enquiry whilst developing their own artistic practice.
I very much enjoy tutoring and nurturing an individual’s own interest in Fine Art by helping them discover wider context and artistic reference as well as techniques and processes. For me Art can lead a conversation into all aspects of study – Literature, History, Classics, Sociology, Psychology – and I encourage my students to expand their thinking and making conceptual links to support a deeper level of understanding and appreciation.
I currently work in Secondary Education teaching Key stage 3 Art, GCSE Textiles and A-Level Art.
Currently evenings and weekends with a view to being more flexible in the new year. I am open to discuss timings with you so please do get in touch so that we can find a time that suits you.
I have over 12 years’ experience teaching Fine Art in schools at Key Stage 3, GCSE and A-Level as well as X years’ experience delivering practical workshops to adult learners. I have mentored students 1 on 1 to help them develop a portfolio for Art school applications as well as offering mock interviews to improve confidence in answering questions whilst also offering help with writing personal statements.
I have extensive experience in supporting students with contextual essays and have mentored students from A-Level to degree. In particular, I have worked with dyslexic student and students with English as an additional language to improve confidence around annotating their work as well as formulating their ideas in full length contextual essays.

"Paul was my Art tutor during both my GCSE and A-levels and because of him he made me realise that Art is something I want to pursue further on at university. He taught me so much that it has instilled confidence in my work. He consistently provided helpful advice on how to improve my portfolio. Most importantly, made me come out of my comfort zone by exploring new ideas and techniques in art. When applying for university, Paul helped me throughout my application process. This included the UCAS application, helping me write my personal statement and my portfolio guidance. He even went the extra mile and contacted an organisation to further help with my portfolio. He is also very reliable as I can always count on him whenever I need help. I would recommend him to anyone."
Marion (Adult Learner)
"I am a Textile Artist but wanted to include print into my work and Paul was so helpful in encouraging me to be more experimental resulting in very individual pieces I could then stitch into.
Paul also recommended contextual artists that he felt would help develop my work, guiding me in a slightly different direction. Most of all Paul is so approachable, making sure he spends time with his students to talk through any concerns they may have with their work. Paul is an excellent tutor and I can thoroughly recommend working with him."
Maya (MA Degree Student)
"Paul was my private tutor during my Masters studies helping me to map out and structure my essays, taking time to explaining as well as help correct my mistakes. He was amazingly patient and supportive of me; I am very dyslexic as well as bilingual which can mean that I mix up languages. I would recommend Paul for any teaching or help."
The first encounter with Paul was great. He was well prepared and informed. He is highly skilled, experienced and communicates well with my daughter daughter.
