"My passion and enthusiasm for art were ignited in early childhood by my architect father and art teacher mother making artistic expression an essential part of my life.
A background in art and theatre mixed with a love of inspiring others to believe in themselves has led me to create a unique method of teaching which allows anyone to reach a clear understanding of the fundamentals of art in a very short space of time. I love the sparkle in a person's eyes when they realise just what talents they have and what they are really capable of.
I aim to depict messages of freedom, openness, adventure and possibility."
