Next weekend ( August 16 and 17) I am teaching at the Art-is-You retreat in NSW. Then on August 30 and 31 I am teaching on the Sunshine Coast. Class numbers are very small and offer a unique opportunity for me to work alongside you as we create glorious art!


On Saturday August 16 and 30th, I have the ‘Girlimals’ Workshop.
In this workshop we will concentrate on creating a gorgeous face in sumptuous colour. I will show you some ways to build up volume and detail. We will then look at how to morph your creation into a beautiful ‘Girlimal’! It will be a day of fun and learning in a relaxed atmosphere.


On Sunday August 17 and 31st, I have the ‘Mermalicious’ workshop.
In this workshop we will concentrate on creating scintillating figures, flowing hair and small faces. I have developed several new techniques that have proved a wonderful pathway to greater artistic confidence!
