I have had a passion for drawing since aged 9 after having my art selected for a local gallery in Hong Kong.  I then started to take it more seriously at school, university and eventually selling paintings, textiles and undertaking comissions. I have 18 years experience drawing subjects from animals to landscapes.

My formal training includes a degeee in Fashion and texiles, A PGCE in Design and Technology and a recent Masters degree in Crictical Creative Practice. Most recently I have illustrated a Childrens book, The thing About Grownups… And Other Strange Beings.

With many years experience teaching both adults and children art/textiles, I wish to continue to share my enjoyment for painting with other like minded artists. I am pleased to say I am now offering classes and workshops in painting for all levels.
