“I am an encouraging tutor teaching a wide variety of technique and media based on the key principles of good drawing and composition, including basic perspective and creative and expressive use of colour and brushwork.
I like to think my teaching style is gentle and encouraging and that my passion for painting is transferred to my students.
In my early career I worked as a freelance artist in advertising but for the past twelve years I have been running art classes and workshops in Southeast England and East Sussex and have been offering my services as a demonstrator, workshop and critique leader for all levels of ability to other established art clubs, groups and societies for several years.
I try to balance my teaching with painting for commissions and exhibiting. My paintings have been shown in many joint exhibitions in the UK including The Pastel Society's 2014 exhibition held at the Mall Galleries, London and am lucky enough to have paintings in collections at home and abroad”.
