Teaching

“I am always doing what I cannot do yet, in order to learn how to do it”                                                                                                                                     Vincent Van Gogh

Qualifications

I have over 25 years’ experience as a professional artist and hold BA(Hons) in Fine Art and a Level 3 Certificate in Education and Training. I have expert skills in drawing and observation including wildlife and the figure. I teach oils, coloured pencil, graphite, acrylics and mixed media. I am also experienced at plein air painting.

I also have undergone two significant seasons in my career when I hit a wall and was unable to paint. Consequently, I understand the agonising struggles and frustrations of being creative and not being able to create ! However I can offer hope. From these times I emerged with a new direction and a new style. So if you are an artist, amateur or professional who requires someone to help you journey from A to B, I would love to help!

Teaching

I am passionate about helping people find their own voice in art. Many of us often try and emulate our admired artist or follow the teacher however I believe each person is unique and has something special to bring. In group sessions or private tutorials, I will work with individuals to help them develop their drawing skills and technique, allowing them to explore who they are as an artist. This can happen even from the beginner stage; it is in embracing your uniqueness that real creative enjoyment and satisfaction happens!

Sessions can be tailored to your needs. I have also do a lot of work outdoors, so sessions do not need to contained within 4 walls!! Please contact me if you would like to discuss an idea.
