Comments: I’m a professional artist as well as being a qualified teacher with more than 35 years’ experience teaching young people and adults. My classes are really relaxed and friendly, with no more than ten people at most – so plenty of individual attention! I’m a gentle tutor, aiming to encourage and inspire. I will explain how to get faces and figures in proportion, demonstrate techniques for you and show you easy ways to get creative

All classes are suitable for beginners, plus anyone who wants help with their techniques, or those who just want to practise. I will give as much or as little hands-on help and advice as you wish.

For more detailed information about each class, please visit my website.
