I am available to give demonstrations or run workshops with Art Groups or Societies within a 50 mile radius of Peterborough. I will travel further by prior arrangement. Please ask for details.
NEW FOR 2013
INDIAN INK WASH-OFF TECHNIQUE - a simple form of printing with exciting results. Demonstrations or Workshops. I can supply materials for workshops.
See the versatility of OIL PASTELS demonstrated. An interesting medium that can produce stunning results.
SOFT PASTELS - a real hands-on medium. See this demonstrated on a heavily abraded paper that holds a lot of pigment and needs no fixing!
EXPLORING TEXTURE IN ACRYLICS -
I enjoy working with acrylics and exploring the textures that can be created with this medium. Exciting stuff!
I can supply materials for all workshops.
I am basically self-taught although, over the years, I have attended many workshops and demonstrations and, I might add, have always found something new or of interest. One never ceases to learn.
I have been painting for most of my life and work in nearly all media - I started with oil paints at the age of 11 and have worked my way through - ending with watercolour - I left the most difficult to last. It is also the most challenging (and rewarding) medium.
My love of vibrant colour is reflected in all my pictures. I am a Professional Associate of the Society for All Artists and as a RSC I also run a weekly art group in Deeping St. James, Lincolnshire. I am also a demonsrator for Derwent. I regularly give demonstrations or workshops to art groups in Lincolnshire or nearby counties.
I will happily take on any commission. - one of my specialities is animal portraits. I can also paint a picture of your house or business premises or undertake portraiture. If you are interested please contact me for further details. I am a member of The Welland Valley Art Society and the Maxey Art Group.
My work is regularly hung in The Stamford Artists Gallery.Maiden Lane, Stamford.
