Beautiful Blooms – great results! Take a look at this recent post – a two day workshop looking at flowers – so enjoyed taking these sessions, such a wonderful group!

My art workshops are aimed at the beginner and those wanting to make time to return to their creative pursuits. Over the last fifteen years I have found the process of using step-by-step demonstrations the most productive and motivating teaching style. It allows the student to relax into the class and gently explore the chosen medium. As a practicing artist I use the techniques I teach, they are core to my artistic work.

Over the years I have witnessed a number of my students go on to develop their own artistic practice with exhibitions as well as diversifying into other creative genres – it truly is a joy to know that in some small way I have helped support that freedom of expression. I aim to facilitate an atmosphere that is warm and friendly within a small creative group. I thoroughly enjoy teaching art and find it both inspiring and a privilege to support others to find the relaxation and joy found through making art.
