I love to inspire novice or nervous artists to lose themselves for a while and play freely with paint, without rules, without judgment, to express not impress.

I run 4-week contemporary acrylic classes for groups of 4 in my working studio.

I also hold weekly ongoing sessions for developing artists who previously completed my 4-week acrylic course.

Classes run during the day and evening at:

The Potter and The Painter, Welch Gate, Bewdley DY12 2AX


I provide absolutely everything. You do not need any experience!!

I am available for art demonstrations and workshops via

Group Session


Something very different, learn about a wonderful way with acrylics, about colour, design, being brave with paint, and creating spontaneously without any plans or sketches.

The next scheduled new class will be after the summer holidays

as I know it can be difficult to commit to things on these long hot nights!

Classes run weekly, for 4 weeks from the start date.

Please commit to attending all 4 sessions.
