A native of England and current Connecticut resident, I’ve spent my entire career fulfilling my passion; working with children. After earning a degree in childhood education and development, I was a nanny in the private sector for over ten years and published two children’s books (“A New Hat for Mommy” and “Picnics and Puddles: The Adventures of the Giggling Pig & Friends”). In 2006, I founded The Giggling Pig Art and Party Studio to give children the opportunity to be more creative. Compassion, creativity and art are the foundation for my studios (Shelton and Bethel, CT). I love making connections with children through art and helping them to be confident, kind and expressive. We offer art classes for toddlers through adults in our studios along with off-site private parties for adults or children. I recently spoke at the Smart Hustle Small Business Conference 2016 in NYC and was excited to win two silver awards at the 13th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business for two categories; Female Entrepreneur of the Year, Consumer Services and Maverick of the Year. I am looking forward to the launch of Giggles On The Go in 2017. This is an art subscription that will be available nationwide. With a decline in good quality art programs in school, I wanted to focus on reaching as many families as possible with our art lessons. I am also excited about partnering with Chelsea Piers in Stamford, CT to offer corporate and team building paint parties. The Giggling Pig Art & Party Studios are certainly growing and I look forward to seeing what 2017 brings.
