PERSONALISED, TAILOR MADE, ONE-TO-ONE OR SMALL GROUP ART LESSONS, ART BREAKS, PHOTOGRAPHY LESSONS AND CREATIVITY COACHING TO FREE YOUR CREATIVITY!
WELCOME! WOULD YOU LIKE TO FREE YOUR CREATIVITY, move beyond just copying photos or other artists' work?
I am a qualified art teacher, life coach, creativity coach and artist with over 29 years experience helping people discover their inner artist, explore themes of personal interest and express themselves in any medium.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME, FROM ABSOLUTE BEGINNER TO VERY EXPERIENCED!
WEEKLY ART CLASSES AND WEEKEND ART WORKSHOPS IN BRESSINGHAM, DISS, NORFOLK
are in very small, friendly groups to ensure you get plenty of individual step-by-step, well thought out, encouraging tuition from a professionally qualified art teacher, so that you progress quickly.
PERSONALISED, ONE-TO-ONE ART LESSONS AND PHOTOGRAPHY LESSONS, CREATIVITY COACHING AND ART BREAKS
are completely tailor made, designed just for you, to nurture your own personal interests, needs and aspirations.
DISTANCE LEARNING - LEARN FROM HOME
If you cannot visit me in Bressingham, Norfolk, I also offer One-to-One Distance and Blended Learning Art Courses and Creativity Coaching, which I find works very well with students.
EXPLORE DIFFERENT APPROACHES TO DRAWING AND PAINTING TO SUIT YOUR INTERESTS
Due to my background in il?ustration, abstract painting, art photography, therapeutic art and digital film, I can help you enjoy exploring and experimenting with new ways of expressing yourself using a variety of creative art approaches from traditional and representational to contemporary, abstract and experimental.
TRY OUT DIFFERENT ART MEDIA BEFORE BUYING
A wide range of creative art and photography media is on offer for you to play with, including pencil, charcoal, pastel, ink, watercolour pencils, acrylic paint, watercolour paint, oil paint, collage, photomontage, mixed media, Photoshop and crafts such as papermaking, book making and experimental textiles.
ART AND MEDITATION AND MANDALA PAINTING
I offer an Art and Meditation Course, which is a beautiful way to combine personal development, self discovery and healing with artistic self expression.
CREATIVITY COACHING TO FREE CREATIVE BLOCKS
Often students come to me with all sorts of personal issues which can sabotage personal and creative development, such as fear, depression, procrastination, creative blocks, resistances, time management issues, low self confidence and misconceptions about what artistic creativity is. To help students with these issues, I trained as a Life Coach, and now offer Creativity Coaching, Life Coaching and Mindfulness Coaching to complement the Art and Photography Tuition I already do.

I AM A QUALIFIED ART TEACHER, ARTIST, LIFE COACH AND CREATIVITY COACH
For 29 years I have been running Art Courses, Art Workshops, One-to-One Art and Photography Lessons, Art and Meditation Courses and Creativity Coaching, helping individuals of all ages and abilities to develop their artistic creativity for personal development and self expression in colleges, schools, mental health, the community and in private practice.
I have also been a professional artist since 1982, painting in both representational, figurative and abstract approaches using diverse media such as pastel, ink, oils, acrylics, watercolours, collage, mixed media and also incorporating photography and text at times.
I have also run my own greetings card and print publishing business, along with being a painter with work in private collections in the UK, Europe and the USA.
Since completing my Masters Degree in Fine Art and training as an Art Teacher, I now work and teach using all media, including pencil, pastel, oils, acrylics, watercolours, watercolour pencil, collage, mixed media, digital photography, photoshop and digital film.
