I not only live and breath the creative arts, it is my business as well.  Art is involved in almost everything I do. I have been a painter for as long as I can remember, but over thirty years I have also taken those skills forward to create two National brands that supply retailers Nationally across Australia, and my fine art is sold globally to blue chip collectors. 

Art is meant to be enjoyed. It breathes life into the ordinary and has the power to move people on an emotional level. 

Art is not just my passion, it is my life, and my business. 

I cannot wait to share my courses with you a teach you a few practical tips and tricks that I have learnt along the way which has helped me both as a surface artist, and as a professional fine art painter.

When you learn with me, you are learning with someone who lives and breathes it everyday, and who works as an industry professional.

Art is instinctive, and is a medium that conveys emotion to the viewer. In this course I want to help you not only have some fun, but to develop some skills to build your confidence as well.  It is my hope that this experience into the world of painting starts to feel like second nature to you so you not only notice more of the beauty around you, but to equip you for when you continue onto your next art-venture!

Now lets create something beautiful…

Who this course is for:

  • Beginners wishing to build confidence with painting.
  • New painters who wish to brush up their skills and learn from a recognised professional.
  • Any one wanting to start with the basics and build to painting some easy botanicals.
