The Classes are held in my home studio. All classes are friendly, fun and informative. I aim to keep my class numbers small to enable me to give individual attention to suit differing abilities. I am a fully qualified teacher specialised in adult learning, with over 15 years of teaching experience. I like to teach my pupils as individuals with them producing work that has come from within them with my guidance. It is always enjoyable to see with the same instructions how each person interprets and produces a unique piece of art.

One to one or small groups, advice and practical sessions offered, GCSE and ‘A’ level support and portfolio compiling.

Many years of personal tutoring art from age 5 to 85 of different levels and requirements, far too many to mention here.
