I have a practical, hands on teaching method.
My calligraphy lessons start with gaining a understanding of tools, letter shapes, spacing and layout, building up to writing illuminated verses with watercolour/gouache illustrations and 23ct gold leaf gilding.
Drawing and painting lessons will start with guidelines on how to select the best photo references to work from or composing subjects from life. We will constructively identify and overcome your difficulties.
I have a functional home art studio with a variety of tools and materials for use. I will also provide tuition in your own home.
I am currently applying for a DBS for working with children and vulnerable adults.
I am a professional studio trained miniature illustrator/calligrapher employed in the manuscript illumination industry since 1999.
I have inscribed, illustrated and gilded epitaphs in Books of Remembrance around the UK since 1999. I use ink, watercolour, gouache and 23ct gold, utilising techniques from medieval times to inscribe on parchment / vellum pages and vellum / leather book covers.
My favourite painting subject is wildlife but I also paint floral designs, helradic coat of arms and military insignia etc.
I have illustrated Freedom of the City scrolls for councils and numerous UK crematorium book covers.
I also have a background in sculpture, casting and portraiture which I continue to develop in my freelance career.
