Arts Emergency

Catherine Haines

Artist and Teacher

I love what I do. I work in the Arts. I get paid pittance, but I wouldn’t do anything else.
Since graduating from St Martins 10 years ago I feel like I’ve had several careers. Fashion designer, textile designer, printmaker, artist and now teacher.
I think it is important to be a practicioner in order to teach art. I think that education should be free, and government cuts in further and higher art education is damaging our soft industries. I hope that volunteering for Arts Emergency will make a difference.
