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 2017 a series of 4 practical workshops exploring drawing will be held at the St John Street Gallery and Cafe, Ashbourne, Derbyshire: February 9th working in monochrome; April 27th introducing colour; October 5th thinking about surface & November 2nd mixed media.

Private Tuition
This can be arranged at my studio at £60 per session.There is no commitment to a course of lessons.

Your first half day session will consist of a minimum of three hours’ discussion, demonstrations and advice; a programme of work will be devised which you can then either follow independently or through additional lessons.

Further private lessons can be arranged at times and intervals to suit.
