I was trained as a figurative painter but over the years moved towards abstraction. I have been running oil painting workshops since 2004. The subject matter is predominantly traditional still life. I teach the basics in how to use oil paint, composition and most importantly how to mix and use colour so that the paintings will not look muddy and the colours will sing.

Each student is encouraged to develop their own visual language, whether it be photo realism, impressionist, expressionist or abstract. There is no house style.

The workshops are from 9 – 4pm and run on certain Mondays throughout the year. Generally there are 18 workshops in a 12 month period.
