You want to live a more creative life.

I'm here with inspiration and techniques

to guide you in making art

a part of your life. 

Art making is an essential practice in my life and I’m delighted when I have the chance to share this passion and experience with others. I teach concrete skills that will give you confidence in your art and guidance as you explore, follow your intuition and develop your own style. I’m honoured to work along side you and watch your creativity bloom. I teach acrylic painting, watercolour painting, mixed media painting and collage, drawing, art journaling and more.
