I am an artist whose practice focuses on oil painting and printmaking. In my work I depict mostly interior spaces, people and landscapes that emerge from memory. My workshops center around individually tailored painting and drawing exercises. I can tailor my workshops depending on the ages and skills of people attending.

Having painted portraits and landscapes for many years I have a strong formal understanding of oil paint and its ability to be used in a variety of ways. Within my workshops I want to demystify the medium and make it more accessible to young people. Painting is such a versatile and energetic medium and I hope to give young people the tools to use it for their own artistic visions. By talking them through my own artistic practice and some of the habits I have developed in my studio they can see some of the skills needed to be an artist.

Her professional and friendly approach to working with young people from all walks of life¬†encourages them to explore their creativity to the full. It’s been great to work with such a talented young artist.”Emily Evans, Bedford Creative Arts
