I am always happy to do requested workshops through art groups and societies.
I am a passionate workshop presenter who has a lot of energy when it comes to bringing out the best in others. I enjoy connecting with other aspiring learners and helping them overcome obstacles in their process, thinking or understanding. I am patient and encouraging and love to build confidence in others. I have many years of teaching experience and relating to different personalities and different skill levels. I love interacting with other like-minded aspiring art lovers and I love a good challenge. I teach all genres of painting from still life, plein air landscape, portraiture, floral and semi-abstraction.
Oils is my medium of choice. I work with people’s individual styles as opposed to teaching one style or method of painting. If you are naturally more abstract orientated then we will work with your style and inclination to improve your skills, even in a group situation. Many total beginners have become successful professional artists and teachers after training with me for a few years.
