TUITION and WORKSHOPS

For the past eleven years I have been traveling round Australia and New Zealand tutoring workshops on Australian landscape and seascape paintings – using the Alla Prima method in oils. Australia is rich in  stunning subjects to paint and there is nothing I enjoy more than to see a well executed landscape.  Painting will always be my first love, but I feel rewarded by being able to impart knowledge and give help to others who are also enjoying the journey of art – something that has enriched my life beyond belief.

Feel free to contact me regarding future workshops for Art Societies both within Australia and also New Zealand. All my workshops are  TURPS FREE OIL PAINTING – for beginners to advanced. I WORK ALLA PRIMA  method with attention to SAFER, NON-TOXIC, NON SMELLY,  OIL PAINTING. 

I can create a workshop to suit your Art Society or Group depending on your needs but specialise in painting water or seascapes.
