Painting the way to digital success

Published: Thursday, 17 December 2015   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

A graduate from Alnwick is brushing up her digital skills with the help of a free training programme.

Pam Vardy, an art graduate, first began painting in 2003. The reason for the switch in career? Her second degree. This particular endeavor motivated her to turn her painting skills into a fruitful business. 

Upon enrolling on a series of free courses offered by iNorthumberland Business Support, Pam is now enticing a number of new clientele to her trade.

The reason Pam signed up for iNorthumberland Business Support was due to her lack of digital skills. 

She decided that optimizing her website skills and digital marketing abilities was an important step to take if she wanted to stay ahead of her game. Additionally, she also used this course to learn how to use social media to promote her business.

Taking a digital focus

By familiarising herself with the ins and outs of modern-day websites and search engine optimisation (SEO), her personal website is now attracting more and more business every day, proof that a degree later in life is certainly worth while. 

“I would highly recommend the training to other Northumberland-based businesses and look forward to attending more master classes myself,” Pam explained.

This is one versatile artist who has embraced technology, showing that regardless of age, every one can speak the language of the future if they want too. Her oil, acrylic and watercolour masterpieces are proving extremely popular and thanks to a recent degree, they are now targeting a wider audience. 

“I have found all of the online training courses really useful and the balance between the online training and in-person master classes has been just right for me, helping put into practice and bring to life some of the topics I have learned,” she added.
