I enjoy the challenge of providing demonstrations and workshops to art societies. My aim is to give an interesting and informative session - a real teaching experience.
As a Freelance Artist, I offer a wide range of demonstrations in different (or mixed) media, and sometimes tailor the event to specific requests by the society. I share techniques and provide an entertaining narrative.

DEMONSTRATION - £130.00 plus travel expenses.
WORKSHOP - £160.00 plus travel expenses - 10a.m until 4p.m.

As an Adult Education Lecturer, I also have classes and various weekend workshops in the Northbrook College Sussex Adult Education prospectus to suit all interests and abilities in various media.
I teach students on a one to one basis as much as possible in my classes.
I think the most important aspect of teaching is to concentrate on confidence building and the understanding of how the things we see and tackle as subjects are put together.

I live in West Sussex where I grew up with the South Downs on one side and the English Channel on the other. This has given me an appreciation of panoramic views and atmospheric seascapes. In fact I am most interested in conveying an atmosphere in a location rather than the location itself. I studied at Worthing Art College and then at Exeter to gain a B.A.(Hons) in Fine Art.
Since leaving higher education I have taken on varied commissions in diverse media including large mural work. From 2001 I have been running several Adult Education classes a week for Northbrook College as well as providing freelance demonstrations, workshops and critiques to art societies. All these are a real "Educational Experience". Many of my students are now exhibiting in their own right in art trails and exhibitions.
From November 2013 I am providing private "open Media" art classes and Life Classes at "The Heene Gallery" Worthing and at "The Shoreham Centre", Shoreham-by-sea. (See my tuition for details).
For a number of years now I have exhibited in the Adur Art Trail gaining excellent feedback from visitors to the venues. New works have included a high proportion of ceramic "Paintings" this year and associated 3d work. My B.A. is in "Fine Art Ceramics".
I am the President of the Downland Art Society, a well established group who meet at Walberton near Arundel.
