Meet Pippa! 

“I love learning outside of the classroom and my passion for languages, art and history has come from my travel abroad. I have lived and worked in France, Spain, Sweden, Malaysia and the USA and travelled through North and Central America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia, including teaching English, Art and Drama in Malaysia. After studying English Literature and European Studies with Spanish at Sussex University, I followed my passion for the Arts and Art History studying a Masters in the art of Antiquity to Byzantium at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London. I work in creative learning and arts education in galleries, museums, literary festivals and contemporary sculpture parks. I love travel and revel in the hilarity and misunderstandings that can rise from the clash of new languages and culture.”
