You’ve got the passion for painting,

but are struggling to make your paintings sing like you’d like them to!

What you need is somebody to clearly show you how to

create good compositions, the technique to paint them and the confidence to enjoy every minute.

And that, my friend, is what I love to do!


“Very best 3 days of inspirational teaching I’ve experienced

She has the vocation to teach.” Ann Clarke

For anyone who loves to paint, all skill levels are welcome.

Three-day inspirational painting workshop

More detailed information here 

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

We will explore the six stage technique involved in painting a painting from start to finish and we will look at how to nurture your creativity and overcome barriers both practical ad internal to progressing.

This workshop is for you if you are a creative person and have been painting for a 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 new inspiration to get you moving.

Two-day business skills workshop for artists

This workshop takes a balanced view of skills needed for the working artists to succeed.

It is intended for artists who want to know more about selling their art and deals with marketing, social media, branding, pricing art, finding galleries, tax and admin.

It also focuses on nurturing our creativity, finding inspiration, overcoming the barriers to progress and dealing with overwhelm.

Part artist retreat, part business boot camp

The idea of this workshop is to take a day out of our busy lives as artists and take a breath. How we can be more productive, more professional and more creative without stretching ourselves thin.

You will not be painting in this workshop.
