Paint with me

Due to the current health climate and the necessity for social distancing I have no upcoming workshops scheduled currently.

Stay safe and watch this space for updates!

It's no secret that I love drawing, colouring and painting with watercolours. It's just something that I have always enjoyed and am drawn to doing. I enjoy the challenge and the process of trying to replicate the colours, textures and details of the world around me. It feels great to take a blank piece of paper and to make it into something special that I can be proud of and share with others.

As it so happens, I also love helping other people to love these things too. So many people comment that they wish they could create beautiful artwork but it is hard to know where to start! 

Let me help you out.


I teach a range of workshop classes for all levels of ability. I always love teaching absolute beginner classes but I also run classes that focus on specific techniques and artistic principles, do step-by-step paintings together and teach more advanced botanical watercolour classes. 

(If you're looking for a little head-start then click here for my free digital downloads for you to practice on.)

Beginner Watercolour Workshops

Perfect for if you've never used watercolours before and are interested to try but also great for anyone wanting to practice the basics! Learn what materials you need, how watercolours work and all the essential techniques you need to make the medium work for you.

Technique Focused Workshops

These are workshops in which I have chosen a particular technique to focus on and practice getting right.

How do you work with white in your watercolour paintings? How can you create fun textures? How do you mix the colours that you need?

I'll tell you.

Step-by-Step Paintings

Lets step through a painting together and I'll show you how to get from a simple line drawing to a detailed, full colour painting.

Advanced Botanical Painting Workshop

Let's step it up a notch and take your work to the next level. Detail and accuracy is my thing and I'd love for you to come and join me! All abilities are welcome in this class but a little experience with watercolours may be helpful to you.
