Since an early age, I have always been immersed in art. I remember painting watercolour Christmas cards each year and have never really grown out of creating bright, colourful pieces of work.
I went on to complete my BA Hons, Degree in Visual Arts and Culture before becoming a secondary school teacher of art in 2003. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching in secondary school but jumped at the chance to work for Jamtart Art Workshops in 2007 and spent a year learning & crafting my trade. During my time at Jamtart I was responsible for art workshops across the North-West and have since realised a vision to build upon what I had learned there and to improve the quality of work by setting up McCarthy Art Workshops.
