Mandy, Line and Wash Workshop Participant 2023
“I love encouraging people in their creativity and I believe that everyone, given the space and encouragement, can produce a personal and integral piece of artwork they can be proud of.
The foundational technical skills applied to drawing and painting are vital and each class I teach focuses on developing these but I also believe in generating freedom rather than perfection.
My studios are surrounded by nature and create a calming and safe environment where people are inspired to ‘have a go’, drawing inspiration from the work of leading contemporary and historical artists. I love seeing my students discover new depths of creativity and the moment of surprise and pleasure when they start believing that they can do it”
