Frequently asked questions


Unfortunately, I have had to cancel. What is your cancellation policy?

Don’t worry these things happen. My cancellation policy is as follows.

For Irish workshops

Cancellation up to 5 weeks before – 100% refund

Cancellation 5 – 2 weeks before – 50% refund
Fee is non refundable if cancellation is made 2 weeks or less to the workshop. However if we can fill your place we are happy to offer a 75% refund

For US workshops:

Cancellation up to 8 weeks before – 100% refund
Cancellation 8 – 4 weeks before – 50% refund
Fee is non refundable if cancellation is made 4 weeks or less to the workshop. However if we can fill your place we are happy to offer a 75% refund




I sent a cheque for payment. Am I guaranteed a place?

You need to pay to hold your place. Bookings are confirmed on receipt of full payment. If the workshop date is near or if there are only a few places remaining, then maybe don’t risk sending a cheque in the post, there are other options than sending a cheque like or paypal that are instant.


What happens if you cancel the workshop?

All of your fee (less the paypal fee, if applicable) will be refunded should the workshop be cancelled due to minimum numbers not achieved or for any other reason.


How are refunds made?

Usually I will refund the amount you paid for the workshop in the same way as you paid me. Paypal, bank transfer or cheque, less any paypal fees incurred.


Is lunch included?

Lunch is not included in the workshop fee.


Will there be any painting at the business workshop?

There will be no painting at the two day business workshop for artists.


Will there be notes provided?

Yes, I will email you notes from the workshop and a list of useful resources, however people often like to take there own notes too, so a notebook and pen might be useful.


Why do you do so few workshops each year?

I teach workshops because I believe in the principle of ‘giving back’ and I’ve benefited much from the generosity of time and knowledge from others. I also teach because there is no better way to learn than to teach. However, although I love teaching and meeting other artists, my first love is painting and thankfully my galleries keep me more than busy. So my compromise for the time being is to do just a few workshops here in Ireland and the occasional one abroad each year.

Do you plan any workshops outside of Dublin?

Yes, I usually plan two outside of Ireland each year. See US trip for more details.
