  • Description
    I am a fully qualified tutor mainly teaching from my own premises in Derbyshire where i have a gallery overlooking the canal in the grounds of Moira Furnace Museum. Here, i teach watercolour classes and drawing classes on a daily basis. I also teach on a private basis for art groups, W.I. meetings and corporate events throughout the Country. Recently i appeared on the art programmed Home is where the Art is with Nick Knowles on BBC One and have received much more recognition since this programmed aired in April 2019. I have illustrated the book My Nana is an Alien which is available to purchase on Amazon where all proceeds are donated to the PHA UK. During my art career, i have completed a series of mosaics situated in the reading gardens at Markfield library and Newbold Verdon and now teach classes in this exciting medium-my most recent commissions were for North West Leicestershire District Council where a large mosaic is situated in their offices at Coalville and three more are positioned in Coalville Park. Something else i am thoroughly enjoying at the moment, is teaching classes on how to make silver jewellery using silver clay, this includes keepsake fingerprints. Also, a professional muralist having completed many hand painted wall murals in children's bedrooms, playrooms and nurseries, i regularly complete commissions using painting techniques on furniture. I now organize painting trips where the first trip in April 2013 was to the South of France and was a great success therefore we returned in 2014 and 2015. I offer painting weekends in Derbyshire so please contact for more detailed information.
