With over 20 years experience as a teacher of art, design and the history of art I am confident that I will be able to help you advance your skills in these areas. I offer a range of options including private tuition, tailor-made classes for small groups and themed painting weekends.

Tutorials are available in the history and theory of art as well as classes which focus on practical techniques.

In 2019 a series of 4 practical workshops exploring drawing will be held at the St John Street Gallery and Cafe, Ashbourne, Derbyshire:  For full details and to reserve a place please contact the gallery by e-mailing
