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...”

ADVANCED COLD WAX WORKSHOP
My teaching partner, Cheryl McGannon and I will once again be facilitating this annual workshop.
ADVANCED COLD WAX PAINTING
- A 5 DAY WORKSHOP
at Cooroy Butter Factory Arts Centre
This workshop is for artists with prior experience using cold wax medium, who want to take their artwork to a deeper level. Participants go beyond basic materials, tools and techniques.
Experienced and generous tutors Kym Barrett and Cheryl McGannon will guide you through this five day intensive workshop in an atmosphere of experimentation and thoughtful consideration. Participants will be encouraged to push deeper into their work, both technically and conceptually.
