Kym is a qualified teacher with decades of experience teaching adults in workshop situations. 

Her 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.

Please contact Kym if you would like to discuss your desire for private mentoring.

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

Kym offers abstract painting and drawing workshops from her Chatsworth studio and in the Sunshine Coast region.

Technique, composition, design, mindset, and intention are all important in her teaching.


Kym particularly enjoys mentoring individual painters. Her strength is in helping artists identify and articulate their desires and challenges and in guiding them towards finding their unique voice. She derives great satisfaction in seeing artists become productive, creative and authentic.

A$400/package of 4 sessions

Artists have the opportunity to address technical, artistic, or professional development issues specific to them.

Mentoring sessions will be conducted via Zoom or in person if you are local to Sunshine Coast, Australia.

Contact Kym to set up a time to discuss your requirements and for a personalised plan of action. I will need to have a biography, CV, artist statement, short term and long term goals and some images of your current work.
