Workshops, demonstrations and talks

I offer oil painting lessons as well as the drawing and acrylic painting tuition that I have taught for some years now. My lessons are very flexible and relaxed, with an emphasis on the student enjoying themselves and working from images that inspire them.

I am happy to travel to deliver worskshops, demonstrations and talks. Over recent months I have been delivering talks on the therapeutic benefits of making and creating. Please get in touch if you would like more information.
