Beautiful Botanicals
I run both Weekly Classes and Botanical Workshops.  My classes and workshops are aimed at students all levels – from absolute beginners to experienced artists. My objective is to inspire my students to experience the joy of producing a beautiful botanical painting. Although this will demand patience, an eye for detail, and the ability to draw a specimen accurately, my students often surprise themselves as they display latent talents which some believe they never possessed.
Throughout 2018, I will be running regular classes in Cwmbran and Cardiff as well as in my studio at home near Raglan.  I will also be running workshops at a number of studios and other locations including Insole Court, Llandaff, Duffryn Gardens, Cardiff and Peak Art near Crickhowell. I'll also be tutoring a residential weekend at Margam Discovery Centre, Margam Park, Port Talbot.
