I received this lovely testimonial from a former student recently- it is very rewarding for me to know that I have made a difference!

I wanted to let you know that I visited Sunderland University yesterday and was accepted to start on a Fine Art degree (part-time) next September. I am very excited! I wanted to thank you because your encouragement, advice, guidance and warmth really set me off on the part to art. Your picture still hangs over our fire-place and both Kate and I often comment on how special it is, and I often find myself thinking of you and what you taught me.’
