::Currently unavailable as already have projects booked up July & August:::
I am a self-employed Calligraphy Artist, Organic Gardener & Graphic Designer who spent an enjoyable 3 & half years after Uni as a youth worker / creative arts & music teacher for disadvantaged young people with the SEND Project, whilst helping to manage a smallholding farm / allotment with friends.
I have several years of experience of organic gardening and allotment work & I've studying a little into Permaculture and Biodynamic planting and would love to learn more in any practical situation and get involved on more projects.
Whilst working for the SEND Project I was teaching art & graphic design on Photoshop & Illustrator for arts projects & helped producing posters for events as well as filming & editing videos to showcase students work.
Being quite fascinated by geometric patterns in nature, which I love to use in my artwork, I am also learning more about sacred geometry and the construction of Geodesic Domes and how they could be very effective housing construction on earthquake fault lines given that the structures are earthquake proof. Implementing this on a project would be great!
I'm quite a practical person and love getting stuck in, whether it be help in the home with cleaning, cooking, homework / helping learn language or arts & music, building, gardening/farming, metalwork fabrication, general DIY.
The most recent project I've been working on is the renovation and painting & decorating of a grade 1 listed building which used to be a Chapel being turned into a restaurant & music venue.

If I can help out in any way that I can, I will, I love spending time with people helping to further project developments or help with family life and learn as I go as well. Everything I do will help will help with my own Buddhist practice.
