I will host weekly, and occasional 3 or 4-day, courses in my new studio in Hampshire. I also teach on workshops at The Eden Project, in Cornwall, and RHS Rosemoor, and other art groups and societies such as The South West Society of Botanical Artists and The Bath Society of Botanical Artists.
My new, purpose built studio is situated in my garden, adjacent to beautiful countryside in the Test Valley, and is an ideal location to get away and forget every-day life, which is often so hard to do.
I love teaching beginners and those with some experience - I have been teaching since 2008. A tried and tested step-by-step approach allows beginners to realise they can achieve their goal, and go on to perfect their individual technique & style with time and practice.
My new Studio is beautifully lit, and includes an extensive library of reference books.
My classes are small and friendly ( a maximum of 8), allowing plenty of time for individual guidance and tuition. All students are encouraged to develop and work at their own pace.
A good sense of humour always helps - it is meant to be fun after all !!
My new Studio opens - September 2017 with a three-day workshop !!
