NEW: 1-2-1 online artist MENTORING sessions

Special 1-2-1 artist MENTORING and feedback sessions where you can book a 1/2 hour session to discuss your work:

  • X3 different sessions available on a Monday morning (or a special unique time slot to suit YOU - available at £50)
  • We can discuss any aspect of your artwork - drawing or painting... or anything else specific to the work you have been producing
  • This is closely guided online tuition tailored specifically to your requirements. To make the most of this it may help you to have a note of essential questions you have about your work to take it forward
  • Whether general advice or specific questions about particular aspects of your artwork for inspiration or to help overcome barriers - it would be a good idea to attach an image of any given work on an email prior to the ZOOM session

£30 for 1/2 hour session - click HERE


CORONAVIRUS and ON-LINE DEMOS

During the CORONAVIRUS pandemic all CLASSES and WORKSHOPS have unfortunately had to be put on hold - however I have a range of on-line painting demonstrations that I have put together. These are only £11 to join and easy to book via the 'SHOP' section: scroll to the end for the 'ZOOM demos' or click HERE

You can either choose to watch and be inspired or use it as an opportunity to do your own work alongside.


  #ARTISTSUPPORTPLEDGE

I have decided to temporarily keep the prices down on paintings in existing series... compared with NEW painting series. So for example small paintings which are currently £385 each will remain at £200 each within a series where that was the original price. This is in support of the #artistsupportpledge initiative. I pledge that if I am fortunate enough to reach £1000 in sales, I will purchase a work by another artist for £200 ( which I am grateful to have already been able to do). This pledge is to all sales of my artwork via my website.



Please follow the #artistsupportpledge on Instagram to see work by the many other participating artists.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists have found themselves without work, teaching, technical support, gallery work. Exhibitions and sales have disappeared. In an attempt to help alleviate some of this stress artist @matthewburrowsstudio has instigated the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE #artistsupportpledge and the concept is a simple one. You post images of your work you are willing to sell for no more than £200 each. Every time you reach £1000 of sales you pledge to buy another artist's work for £200. This creates a dynamic culture and market, where all can contribute, whatever their level of success. This is a culture dependent on the honesty and generosity of our artistic communities at every level.
