My passion is painting - and I also love sharing my knowledge and experience gleaned over the last thirty years. I started by teaching children aged six through to thirteen, in my studio at home over 15 years ago, and I derived huge satisfaction from encouraging them. The smiles of the children when they surveyed their handywork was infectious. I am proud to report that a number of my students have gained scholarships to senior schools, and a handful of my former pupils are now making art their career. Following on from this I was encouraged to start adult groups and these have varied from intense drawing boot camps to weekly/monthly painting sessions.
