Watercolour workshops and art classes in North Yorkshire.
Discover the joys of painting in watercolours with my tailored classes. My courses are perfect both for beginners and more experienced painters looking to refine their skills. I provide personalized instruction, demonstration, and hands-on experimentation. My classes are located in the scenic surroundings of North Yorkshire: York, The Howardian Hills, North York Moors - all ideal locations to find inspiration.


Here is what some previous clients had to say:

​'Brilliant day – you are as gifted a teacher as an artist!' ​​
'I loved the process ...I love that you can achieve so much working with the various ways to add texture - all in all - a very positive experience.​'
'Everyone got to walk away with something they felt proud of.'​

'Everything about the workshop was well managed - we were stimulated, assisted appropriately - encouraged - and - given the time to explore.'

'Thank you for your time, patience and the generous sharing of your knowledge and experience.'​'The subject and activities were a great introduction to watercolour for me.'

'I really liked how you invoked freedom, give it a go, a bit of pink here, turquoise there.....who would have thought that's what brings the sky to life!'

'I feel so inspired and look at our countryside and think how I could paint it!'​  ​
