TO BOOK A DEMONSTRATION

Bluebell-Wood,-soft-pastelsYou can contact me direct or my agent, Barbara Coulson at Art Profile Barbara@artprofile.co.uk to book or discuss a demonstration.

I work in a wide variety of media – pastels, pastel pencils, acrylics, water soluble pencils and monochrome drawing media, so there’s plenty to choose from.

Demonstrations are tailored so that even those in the back row can see and hear what I’m doing which means some detailed subjects are not suitable or practical, unless your art group has a camera and screen facility.

Comments and questions from the audience are welcomed. I find this makes for a more stimulating evening for everyone! Please book as far in advance as possible.

TO COME TO A DEMONSTRATION

Many of the art groups to whom I give demonstrations welcome non-members and for a small fee you can come along, but please contact them first to check.

TO BOOK A WORKSHOP

Please contact me to set a date and choose a subject. For workshops, I will supply a list of materials, outline the proposed timetable, and bring lots of examples of original artwork, reference photos and spare materials, if required.

"Inspiring is not a word that often springs to mind when you have been around the block a few times but I found the whole day really inspiring. I learnt a great deal, from small things to the whole business of how to approach a painting and the areas within it ."
