I am a qualified teacher with decades of experience teaching adults in workshop situations. 

My passion is in working one-on-one with committed artists, to help them discover their own personal voice and to urge them forward in their art journey, regardless of their chosen media.

My main focus in teaching is in fostering an atmosphere of open exploration, risk and discovery...”
