My adult lessons are suitable for advanced, intermediate and beginners. Whether you wish to progress drawing skills, learn painting techniques or, if you are skilled but wish to develop your style further and flourish as a professional artist - I design bespoke lessons and courses which cater to your own unique requirements.

Having attended Wendy's art classes for the last year, I have always found her to be helpful and encouraging. She has a lovely personality and her creativity is inspirational. I feel that my art work has definitely improved thanks to her influence.
Wendy is a brilliantly creative artist with a warm and friendly personality. Her wonderful enthusiasm for art is inspiring, and her classes are great for encouraging you to explore and expand your own artistic ideas in a relaxed and welcoming space.
I've been attending Wendy's art classes for almost a year. Each session is challenging yet rewarding. Her positive enthusiasm and broad knowledge of techniques and medium is truely inspirational. I always look forward to her classes as I know I'll be encouraged to try something new and push me out of my comfort zone. My art has gone from strength to strength over the past year, I can really see my progress. Highly recommended!
