Private Tuition

Sessions are one-to-one with a minimum booking of two hours. A session can involve portfolio assessment/preparation, still-life, life drawing and painting or portraiture.

I have 100% success rate in portfolio preparation for art school applicants.

Corporate courses

By arrangement. Suitable for individuals and departmental teams on specific projects and general team building.

I construct life drawing courses around a company’s needs. Whatever the level of experience, staff will derive benefit from the class. They are run at my studio with a maximum of nine in a group.
