Artist, founder & course leader at Painting Zone
I love painting and I passionately believe in the importance of creativity to everyone's happiness. I moved to Cirencester from Bristol in Jan 2020, and I have since then fully succumbed to the magnetic charms of this delightful town. I was fortunate to aquire 4 Beeches Workshops in during 2020, where I have based my own painting practice since Autumn 2020. Previously, I was based in Bristol, and for many years I taught painting skills classes and tutorials to a number of different adult groups and individuals in Bristol and London. I founded "Painting Zone Art Workshops" in 2013, with the aim of providing creative spaces in inspiring environments, to support the development of artists. Painting Zone classes are designed to be fun, with structured learning experiences tailored towards individual artistic learning needs. They can provide an oasis of calm within a busy life. This atmosphere lends itself to promoting friendships within mutually supportive learning and shared enjoyment. New physical courses have now been scheduled at 4 Beeches Workshops, for very limited numbers this year, to enable social distancing. There are free taster classes being offered through August, prior to the start of term-time adult courses in September 2021. If you are interested in finding out more, or would like to join a Painting Zone course, please refer to the Course dates/Bookings page, or feel free to email me with any further queries via the email form. I will get in touch by 'phone or email, and please do remember to provide your 'phone number with your query. If you would like to receive occasional information about new physical course dates, non-residential retreat-style weekends, individual and online tuition, please subscribe to the Email list on the Welcome page. I very much look forward to painting with you!
