Workshops, Demonstrations and other events 2015


In 2015 I will run two kinds of workshop.

Weekend inspirational artist’s workshop

Focusing on painting technique and also on finding inspiration and overcoming the barriers to creativity.

This workshop are for you if you are a creative person and have been painting for short time and would like to learn more about painting. You will also benefit if you are already an artist and would like to refresh your skills and get some inspiration to get you moving. The first will be a two day workshop in The Schoolhouse for Art Enniskerry Co. Wicklow in January 2015.

Enniskerry, Co Wicklow – January 2015    NOW BOOKING

One day workshop for working artists

This workshop is intended for artists who are already selling their work. Whether it be in small amounts irregularly or full time artists selling in galleries or other outlets or somewhere in between.

The idea of this workshop is to take a day out of our busy lives as artists and take a breath. Look at what we are doing and how we can do it better. How we can be more productive, more professional and more creative. We will spend time on the business of  being and artist but also on how to find your voice and keep finding inspiration. You will not be painting in this workshop.

Enniskerry, Co Wicklow – March 2015 date TBC

If you follow me online or know my work then you will know to expect a good dose of positivity and a bit of fun! Either way, I mean to encourage and motivate you and get you fired up to paint.
