TO BOOK A DEMONSTRATION

Bluebell-Wood,-soft-pastelsYou can contact me direct or my agent, Barbara Coulson of Art Profile
Email: 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 not all subjects or media are suitable or practical, unless your art group has a camera and screen facility. 

Comments and questions from the audience are welcomed - I find makes a more stimulating evening for everyone! Please book as far in advance as possible; I live in Kitten-pastel-pencilsFrance and my trips to the UK are limited to 4 or 5 visits per year of 4 -8 weeks duration.

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. I will supply a list of materials, outline the content of the workshop, 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 in the day from small things to the whole business of how to approach a painting and the areas within it "
