Welcome to the ‘behind the scenes’ area of my website.  I’m often asked about my approach and techniques, and in these pages I’ve tried to provide a little insight into the way I paint.  Here are links to demo videos, articles, my biography and details of tuition.  Please click below to visit the area you’re interested in.

Pastel Painting Tuition: I’m a qualified teacher and I’m happy to help artists of all abilities to develop their skills. I offer private one-to-one tuition here at my studio in beautiful West Wales from April to September. These sessions are intensive and very much tailored to your own requirements. The fee is 50 per hour (minimum 2 hours) including materials and refreshments.  Discounted rates for bookings of over 8 hours and for returning students. Please contact me to discuss arrangements.
