Pastel Artist & Teacher/tutor
Me & my first Fur Baby, darling Wally
I am a practicing artist with over 40 years of teaching experience in public & private schools, 5 years of that as Head of Faculty. I have also taught adult classes, specialising in painting & drawing, both in Australia & abroad.(UK, Cairo & Hong Kong.) I have participated in many group & solo shows & my works are in private collections in the UK, South Africa, Canada & the USA.
I am available for private tutoring sessions in drawing & painting. I specialise in pastel painting, especially pet portraits. I have extensive experience of tutoring people of all ages, with a range of levels of ability, developing & nurturing their creative potential.
HSC student tutoring
As a senior HSC marker for over 12 years & in charge of drawing submissions, I understand the challenges of creating an HSC submitted artwork in drawing. My tutoring is focused on the creation, development & completion of the students' artwork.
Currently I am tutoring at Riverview, St Ignatius and teaching art to seniors. My passion however is pet portraiture & I spend much of my time creating drawings & paintings, by commission as artworks & memories of treasured pets.
