I was 28 by the time I was diagnosed as having dyslexia and dyspraxia. I was studying for my MA in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art and just starting my dissertation. Previously I had struggled profoundly with many subjects at school – maths, music theory, languages, and would often dismiss the things I found difficult as irrelevant, or simply concentrate on my strengths. The revelation that I had both dyslexia and dyspraxia changed my life and my way of thinking about how to deal with these problems. I love using my passion for art and translating this in a classroom context, in ever ambitious and radical ways.
