COURSES & WORKSHOPS
Learning is fundamentally about igniting, developing and extending your own passion through creating and expressing yourself.
I'm committed to helping you discover and tune your unique artistic voice. My approach is built on:-
Collaborative Learning: My workshops do not simply focus on instruction, techniques or how to paint like me but seek to create a warm and inclusive environment where artists of all levels can come together, share ideas, and learn from one another.
Compassionate Support: Creating art is a deeply personal experience and our visual journey is never fixed. Every course and workshop has at its core personalised support and guidance throughout empowering you to grow and develop as an artist.
Nurturing Your Creativity: creativity flourishes when you are enabled to take risks, play and have fun in a safe and nurturing space. My workshops are designed to provide you with a range of tools, techniques, and inspiration which you can then use to express yourself in your own practice.
Whether you're a practicing artist looking to refine your skills and thinking or a beginner eager to learn, there is a course or workshop for you.
When courses are released there is always limited availability so register your interest through the link at the bottom of each course description and I will keep you updated with dates, location and cost of upcoming courses and workshops so please do register your interest
