Having studied Fine Art at degree level, I was surprised to learn that the majority of the course content was conceptual and that the technical side of painting was left out of the curriculum. Because of this, I didn't ever formally learn how to use oil paints, but through reading, research and with help from other students I developed my knowledge of oil painting and started to grow my practice. Although I am grateful for building my skillset with my own creativity and freedom, I don't think it should be so difficult to find practical teaching. Now that I am well versed in the medium, I hope to share my knowledge with others who are looking for focused teaching on technical skill and experimentation. I don't wish to hand you a replicated skillset, but I hope to show you practical ways to improve your observation, passion and portrayal for the subject before you.
Through online and in person teaching, I hope to encourage students of all levels to develop their personal practice and to engage in a creative community. If you would like to learn more about the range of tuition I offer, feel free to explore the links below or just send me a message.
I offer private tuition for those who may be seeking specific teaching or for students who simply want a focused workshop based on their own abilities. I am once again offering in-person tuition, however, I will continue to teach online lessons over zoom
if this is more convenient. Lessons cost £30/hr and can be planned and adapted around the student's specific needs. If you would like to book a lesson on behalf of someone else this can also be arranged. To discuss this or to arrange a booking please click the links below.
