Artist, academician and University lecturer offering teaching in observational drawing and painting

Methodology

I have been a practicing, professional artist for my whole adult life. I am interested in helping students tackle the key obstacles that they encounter in drawing/painting landscape, portrait, still life etc, by helping them to understand of the nature of the obstacles and giving them strategies to overcome them.

Experience

I am an artist, and an academician at the Royal West of England Academy (RWA) I have been teaching life drawing and painting at Falmouth University for 16 years and teaching portraiture and landscape painting at St Ives School of Painting for 5 years.
