Workshops & Classes



Since September I had to learn how to teach on-line using the zoom platform. This has been a challenging journey, but I think I have almost mastered it now. I have been making recordings of the classes, which have improved with time and now I’m going to attempt some short painting technique videos.

Have a look at the classes being offered, in the new year. I hope you will join me.


During this unsettled time of the Covid 19 Pandemic many people have been finding it difficult to find the motivation to paint and feel isolated and cut off from friends and community.

 At this time, more than ever, it is very important for our mental health to keep our creative juices flowing and to be able to express ourselves and our feelings in some creative way. Creative expression in any form is healing.

I am offering this opportunity to join me, and a supportive group of artists, as we paint together, from our own studios and connect on the Zoom platform. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and get feedback on your work from me and the other participants, and to support and encourage each other in our painting process.

We will continue to meet each week, for 8 weeks, using the “zoom” platform.

You can join at any time.

Dates: Thursday May 6- June 24, 2021
Times: 1.00pm-3.45pm
Fee:   $144 ($18 per class for whole session or $20 for drop in classes.)


Class format

Participants are invited to send in an image of a painting they are working on for feedback from me and the group.
We will look at these together, at the beginning of the class.
Then I will offer a short meditation/centering practice. 
Following this you will have the opportunity to paint on your own project.
Participants are able to ask for feedback or my input as we paint until 3.15pm on line or off line. At this time participants can show their work if they want comments from me and the group.
