Artists and Teachers
Founder & Tutor
Having been painting and drawing since I was about 3 or 4 years old when I won a painting competition at the age of five, it seemed to ignite a love of art that has been with me ever since. I wanted to create a space where people like me could get together - for the love of art.
My favourite mediums to work in are oils, watercolour and acrylics, I also love decorating ceramics and have a range which now jostles for space on the kitchen dresser.
I love to learn from others and pass on my skills on to you – I hope you enjoy the classes!
Drawing has always been my delight and passion, I cannot remember a time that I have not been either painting or drawing, even as a child.
Although studying and qualifying as a teacher in 1972, I am a self taught artist, and have been teaching art in schools, colleges, to groups and individuals for many years.
I specialise in watercolours with or without ink, and drawing in many mediums. I have a passion both personally in my own work, and teaching, capturing a sense of light, whether its source is sunlight, starglow, reflections, moonlight, fire, candlelight or,of an artificial source.
