Classes & Workshops
Welcome to my new studio!
My little garden studio began to feel a bit small these last few years, so I started to think about finding somewhere bigger where I could produce larger works and potentially hold open studios. Having held many successful painting workshops in local venues, I also hoped to find a multi-purpose space that would allow me to host my own classes too.
Finally, in September last year, the opportunity arose and I set about renovating and transforming an old generator shed into a bright and spacious art studio. Now, after many months of hard work, I am excited to announce that my new studio is finished and I can begin to welcome visitors and students to experience art in this amazing space.
New classes and workshops coming soon
I am currently preparing a range of classes and workshops and will announce these on my website and social media soon.
Whether you are a beginner who has always wanted to learn to paint, or a more advanced student looking to extend your knowledge, then please register your interest so that I can send you further details.
Talks, presentations and lectures
I also give talks, presentations or guest lectures to art groups, schools, colleges and other organisations interested in enhancing their creativity. Talks can be on a range of topics and tailored to suit each audience.
Please get in touch if you are interested in arranging a group event.
