With literally years of talking behind me, some people say I'm too good at it...
I really enjoy meeting new people and communicating my joy for the processes involved in creating artwork
I am happy to present a mini workshop, talk, demonstration or combination thereof, with a general introduction to or a focus on one of the various methods I use.
Quite eclectic in my work; I make abstract collage with graphic influences, simple prints, watercolour landscapes, life drawings, photographs and installations. This mix of traditional and more contemporary styles means there is usually something I can offer you, relating to the particular taste or style of your group or society.
I am happy to combine the use of a projector and laptop, equally comfortable with you seeing and handling pieces - 'low-tech' keeps things simple - but PowerPoint images are also really useful, so we can discuss your preferences.
Sharing the names of artists who influence me, I'll show you examples: a great way to continue our learning as artists. I explain where else ideas come from - you'll see plenty of pieces; framed, unframed, sketchbooks and other items. Costs and availability below
If you think I can be of some use, please get in touch - I love to share my enthusiasm for what I do.
