I have taught for the adult education service since 1994 and I run private classes and an outdoor painting school each summer. I thoroughly enjoy demonstrating to local groups.
I am teaching on two residential courses in 2011.
Lynmouth, Devon from May 23-26 2011 and The Isle of Wight Oct 3-7 2011.
The 2012 painting holidays are currently being put together.
We will be painting on location but with studio sessions and lots of
demonstrations.There is emphasis on the individual and last year was great fun. Contact either myself or Matthew Clark at Cheddar Gallery Tel:01934 744188 who is running the holidays. www.cheddargallery.co.uk
Day workshops in watercolour and pen and wash at 'The George Hotel. Yarmouth' planned for Feb 2nd 2012 and March 1st 2012.
I am happy to teach privately. The Isle of Wight has lovely scenery for outdoors painting. If you would like to discuss this please telephone me.
I have been painting professionally for twenty two years although my love of all things art related goes back many years!I draw my inspiration from the rich diversity of the Isle of Wight landscape with its great natural light and my painting travels abroad. I work in watercolour, pastel and acrylic and my subjects include marine, landscape and architectural views and increasingly portraiture.
I am a member of "The Society of Women Artists" and "The Hilliard society of miniaturists."
I am a contributor to the Leisure Painter Magazine and have work in print with various companies.
I teach for the adult education service also running a summer painting school here on the Island.
My next painting holiday is on the Isle of Wight from Oct 3-7 2011 staying at Bourne Hall Hotel, Shanklin. The 2012 holidays are currently being put together.
