Artist - Teacher - Demonstrator

A warm welcome to my website. I’m a professional artist living in the beautiful county of Rutland and have been teaching, demonstrating and painting commissions for the past 20 years.  I specialise in hand painted portraits of  pets, people and wildlife - please enjoy browsing!

These workshops are an ideal introduction to using the very versatile medium of soft pastels.  Suitable for beginners through to the more advanced, I teach a step by step guide on how to produce a portrait from start to finish.  There is no need to be confident in drawing as we usually trace an outline to work with, my aim is to teach you how to layer colour, gain depth and achieve realistic detail.  There is no pressure, it’s a fun and sociable way to spend 3 hours of ‘you’ time….why not give it a try?  

Price £40 (all materials included)

Time 10am-1pm

Booking is essential as there are limited places available.

A perfect way to encourage and inspire confidence to children 7+ years of age.  We create a 'masterpiece' from start to finish using a step by step teaching method.  Using a traced outline, the children will learn how to create depth and realism using shading, tone and layering of colour.
