I run workshops in Bath, visit art societies, festivals and schools – teaching children and teachers – and offer private classes in your home. Summer 2016 saw me teaching in marquees, a heritage centre and even a rural dairy overlooking its lovely herd of cows! Below are details on each type of course but please email me with any specific enquiries.

watercolour landscapes for adults – beginners & improvers:

Enjoy the freedom of form within landscapes in my Bath-based watercolour workshops, during Wylye Valley Art Trail and at First-View Gallery at Stourhead gardens, Wiltshire. Because of the forgiving subject matter, landscape workshops are suitable for beginners as well as those with painting experience. Learn to paint on a sloping watercolour board, encouraging paints to mix themselves with the aid of water and control the resulting chemistry. Subjects can include: Beautiful Bath Slopes; Winter trees; Gorgeous skies; Inundation; Dramatic clouds & weather; misted landscapes etc.

The next available landscape day is: Winter trees – Thursday 9th March 2017 in Bath:

watercolour portraits for adults – some experience:

Develop your understanding of facial features. Experience complex colour mixing for portraits. Work “wet-in-wet” to map tonal variation and lend drama to your portraits. Suitable for painters with a little experience.

The next portrait workshop day is: Wednesday 8th February 2017 in Bath:


I am often asked to demonstrate my watercolour techniques to Art Groups and at festivals and events. Subjects so far have included misty landscapes, family portraits, enchanted woodland, underwater worlds and my head-and-shoulder portraits.
Please Email me for particular enquiries.

schools and teacher workshops:

I find that pupils who sometimes find it hard to engage in academic sessions often find it easier to concentrate when creating their art. I am used to tutoring large groups with particular experience of teaching Years 5,6 & 7s. I also provide one-to-one tutorials for A’Level and GCSE students. I enjoy developing themed workshops around the needs of your school, as well as delivering creative sessions for teachers.
