"I truly believe everyone has the ability to be creative. I enjoy teaching all learners how to express their artistic abilities, whether you’re a beginner or intermediate learner. These workshops are designed for everyone, you'll be able to walk away with a new skill and a finished piece or a work in progress but sometimes it’s the journey that counts, it's about experiencing something new, meeting new people and immersing yourself in something different from your normal walk of life. Art is my therapy and I know I couldn’t live without expressing my creativity, so what is holding you back, come to one of my fun and friendly workshops and have a go."
