As a teacher, I have always taken pride creating an interesting and colourful classroom environment. Through the years, my colleagues often pointed out that I had a flair and natural creativity for making role-play areas, interactive learning displays and wall displays to show children’s work off to its best advantage. I would feel a real enthusiasm each term thinking and adapting ideas to develop a theme based on the current topic.
I have also enjoyed creating backdrops and costumes for assemblies and plays.
Taking time off from teaching, I decided to develop backdrops based on popular topics taught in schools that would be used as a means to decorate any child’s room as well as a stimulus for role-play.
My initial watercolour paintings are now printed onto vinyl - a great alternative to permanent artwork. I chose vinyl as an obvious material as it is durable and practical.
Now I can offer a range of themed wall hangings to brighten up any room, garden or school environment that can be used for decorating or/and as a teaching aid.
Using my original paintings and a lot of dedicated hours on my computer , I am currently creating PowerPoints, Bingo games, flashcards and worksheets based on each theme to further develop learning and play.
It takes time to design and create these resources single-handed, so please encourage your friends / colleagues to visit my website for additional resources and downloads.
If you cannot find what you want, why not get in touch?
I may be able to create a scene just for you.

You can now find & obtain my printable resources and PowerPoints on my new website

All backdrops are printed in the UK!
Cheaper alternatives do not guaranty that colours fade over time...tried & tested!
