Lesley Smitheringale

I graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a degree in Printed Textiles many moons ago and went on to gain a Certificate for the Practice of Teaching Art. I've been educating creative youngsters for over 25 years having taught up to Year 12 at High School level. Taking the plunge and resigning from my job as an art teacher in a private College in the Gold Coast, Queensland, I now teach extra-curricular art to children in my home studio in the Redlands area of Queensland alongside doing my own freelance illustration and art licensing work. I can't wait to be your virtual art teacher!
