No workshops at present time due to Covid 19! I offer several options for oil painting workshops including morning sessions and all day sessions. Maximum of 5 per class in my studio at Krowji Redruth. I can also run a larger class (10 max) in the Artroom at Krowji if required. If you are interested in taking an oil painting workshop please get in touch for availability – Thank you

I’m currently working on paintings for Gallery 5, Salcombe in Devon, Wychwood Art in Oxfordshire, VK Gallery St Ives Cambridgeshire as well as commissioned pieces and new work for The Customs House Gallery in Porthleven.

You may also spot me out sketching in all weathers during the morning with my oil pastels and Basil (my spotty dog) in tow! We are usually exploring the footpaths around Penrose, Helston or Carn Brea and Wheal Uny near my studio at Krowji Redruth. I also run the sketching club at Krowji where we meet every other Tuesday to go out working in the landscape around the Redruth area.

I teach oil painting courses at St Ives School of Painting –¬†Hidden Landscapes‘ which combine my love of working outdoors on location with studio oil painting. Please take a look at the link.

I will also be working with Truro Arts again in 2021 after delivering 2 fully booked oil painting workshops during 2020. Look out for details of 3 plein air oil painting courses I will be teaching in Summer 2021 on their website.
