Founder & Co-Director

Hello! Thanks for checking in to Dib Dab. I truly believe children are happiest when they are being creative…

Art has always been a major part of my life and from a very young age I was at my happiest when I was painting and creating. After leaving Alleyns School in Dulwich, London, I studied Foundation Art and Design at Chelsea School of Art followed by a BA Hons Graphic Design at The London College of Communications. My professional career as a graphic designer and art director spans over 15 years working for international publishing houses, design agencies and world renowned dance and retail companies.

When my son was born 8 years ago I realized there were no art classes in Surrey that inspired and developed creativity in children. When Oliver started nursery I volunteered to gain teaching experience at preschool age and this coupled with my professional experience gave me a great idea!
The rest as they say is history! I am thrilled to say I have watched Dib Dab Art Club grow in size and popularity over the last two years as we strive to create a truely unique and creative experience for your child. An experience which will develop their creative potential along side their sense of self confidence and self worth.

Art is where the fun is and when we engage with something that makes us feel good many great things happen:)
