Teaching is a really important part of my artistic practice. I taught drawing and painting full-time for several years in colleges, and now I teach on a freelance  basis, allowing me to balance my time between the classroom and studio. I currently teach regular courses for York Learning, which is a  community-based adult education provider. 

I also  teach private classes, from group workshops to bespoke lessons. I offer workshops for art groups, charities and clubs and cover all abilities from absolute beginners to advanced practice.  I’m happy to provide a quote (either an hourly rate or for a ‘whole day’). 

  • REGULAR TERM-TIME COURSES
  • PRIVATE TUITION
  • GROUP WORKSHOPS
  • ART TALKS & DEMONSTRATIONS

Do get in touch if you’d like to talk to me about workshops, visits, or courses. I’m happy to provide  you with a quote and ideas of what I can offer  –  email or call me here
