Creative Events

I have been making art for as long as I can remember. When we are making art we make time for ourselves. We put aside the problems and stresses of life and focus on our inner self, we are completely in the moment. Last year I discovered that I love sharing my passion for creating with other people and started running workshops and Paint Jams. Being creative is good for us, it can relax us and improve our mood. Remember the fun you used to have playing with crayons and paint as a kid, you can do that again and it is still a lot of fun.

My Paint Jams and workshops are designed to give people a taste of how enjoyable it can be to make art and be creative. No previous experience is needed for most events and workshops. They are suitable for beginners or people wanting to get back into art making after a break, or more experienced artists who want to try something different. Of course, they are also great for people who just to have fun and be creative.

I also offer a range of online courses for absolute beginner and experienced artists, also for people that just want to have fun and enjoy a ‘Paint Jam’ in their own home.

I am completely open and transparent about my own techniques, struggles and wins as an artist. It is my aim to inspire, coach and motivate you to be creative and make art and discover how joyful and liberating it can be.

I run Paint Jams and Workshops in a number of different locations, they all have parking, refreshments and everything you need to make great art.

Increasingly people also like to learn in the comfort of their own homes at their own pace. If this sounds like you then I have a number of online courses and free taster courses for you to try.
