 Mindfulness through creative expression 

 I am a London based visual artist and educator,   exploring the evolving notions of beauty in our society and   how art can be a powerful force in the search for holistic   wellness.

 

 I work to raise the profile of the arts in my community in    West London by organising art trails, events, social groups   and exhibitions. I also represent the arts community on the  Ealing Community Network board of executives. 

 

 Constantly learning and evolving as a person as well  as an artist, I aim to share my work as well as  my knowledge and experience with others. A firm believer in  the transformative nature of individual creative expression, I    try to encourage and nurture this in my students.

What are the courses about? The courses are split into three projects, consisting of three classes each. 

Abstract Acrylic:

At the beginning of each project, we will explore a principle, concept or technique along with the work of relevant artists, after which you will be set a brief. 

 

Acrylic Painting: At the beginning of each project, we will explore a principle or technique along with the work of relevant artists, after which you will be set a brief using your own source material as inspiration. This could, for example, be an object, a memory or a photograph you have found or taken. 

You will interpret and be supported to work on the brief over the course of 3 classes, completing your work in the final class or at home. This means that you will have three finished pieces by the end of the course. This course also includes a gallery visit day, details of which will be provided in class.

 

You will have the opportunity to explore a variety of abstract painting techniques and methods, stimulating your creativity and building your personal painting 'toolkit'.

About the classes: I am an experienced art teacher and aim to create a safe and supportive environment for all my students, where you are encouraged to explore your creativity without fear of judgment from others. Artwork created on these courses has been exhibited, with students going on to sell some of their pieces.
