I taught Art, Craft and Design in schools in Ireland and abroad; holding positions as Teacher of Art, Craft and Design, Head of Art and Director of Art. I am registered with the Teaching Council of Ireland as a Post-primary Art Teacher (including Crafts). I have experience of having worked as an Assistant Examiner for Leaving Certificate Art, Craft and Design (including the History and Appreciation of Art). I have also been involved in many community art projects over the years and was an community education art tutor for over 10 years. I currently lecture on 'Community Arts', 'Creative Group Facilitation for Young Children' and 'Working Creatively with Service Users' at Technological University Ireland.
