I currently teach at various art studios around Sydney. Click here for a list of art studios that I am currently teaching at.
"I teach a loose approach to painting. Very much 'less is more'. I like to have fun in my lessons and do not hold back when someone is not doing the right thing... In the nicest possible way of course! I certainly give lots of praise too. I try to give students confidence in their ability and believe that you only need basic drawing skills with watercolour. If the paint is properly applied, you will end up with a lovely painting."
I give full-day workshops at the following places in Sydney:

It doesn’t matter what the subject matter of a workshop... I concentrate on paint quality and teach you how to get the paint down and make it look great.
Don’t worry about drawing skills or lack thereof, i will help you learn how to draw but overall it is the watercolour that is the most important thing.
Watercolour Bootcamp — this is a day of fast painting and drawing covering all sorts of subjects.I’ll be giving you all sorts of tips to give new confidence and vibrancy to your work. Let me know beforehand if there is something in particular that you want to do and I’ll do my best to include it.
