Each lesson has been fun and totally absorbing- where did time go!? I have learnt so much! The mix of theory and practical, ‘hands on’ works really well for me. Your lessons have been excellent value. Thank you so much!

I’ve really enjoyed the sessions and appreciate all your guidance and support. I’m feeling much more confident, and I’m definitely moving towards developing a style which I’m comfortable with and looking forward to continuing.

As always, you gave good advice and I find I need reminding of the stuff that works!

Yesterday’s couple of hours was really inspirational – it suddenly seems like having a go at experimenting with paint is no longer so daunting. Challenging certainly, so much to learn, but I really enjoyed it.
