I pride myself in being able to teach techniques in any drawing and painting medium and can do that in just about any subject area; be it landscape, flowers, wildlife, still life, portraits or life drawing. Perspective is not a problem either (I have studied Renaissance art in detail). I am a fully qualified further education lecturer.
As a member of the Society of Graphic Fine Art, draughtsmanship is a major stength and I can teach the fundamentals as well as the more advanced techniques of drawing as well as painting.
I teach regularly in local adult learning classes, doing many Saturday workshops in local schools, colleges and art clubs and have a regular week-long slot at the summer school held at Cottenham Village College held annually in July.
I am available to teach or demonstrate on some weekdays as well as at weekends and can do that by arrangement.
After leaving the Army and doing a variety of different jobs, I took the plunge and went to Art college (Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee), graduating in 1999 with an Honours Degree in Fine Art. Since then I have been elected as an Associate Member of the Society of Graphic Fine Art. In 2007 I gained my Proffessional Graduate Certificate in Education.
I am a full member of the Society of Graphic Fine Art, have studied Renaissance art with the Open University, am a full member of the Institute for Learning (and am liscenced to teach in further education) and have an entry in Who's Who in Art.
I specialise in drawing, painting and printmaking.
