Mindfulness through creative expression
I am a London based visual artist and educator, interested in the power of creative practice as a path to holistic wellness and healing.
I raise the profile of the arts in my community in West London by organising art trails, events, social groups and exhibitions. And I represent the arts community on the Ealing Community Network board of executives.
Always open to learning and evolving as a person as well as an artist, I love to share my work, knowledge and experience with others. A firm believer in the transformative power of individual creative expression, I encourage and nurture this in my students.

What are the courses about?
Both courses are split into three projects, consisting of three classes each as well as a gallery visit designed to inspire and put what you are learning into context.
Abstract Acrylic Painting:
At the beginning of each project, we will explore an abstract principle, concept or technique along with the work of relevant abstract artists, after which you will be set a brief.
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. The practice of creating abstract work may at times push you out of your comfort zone however, the resulting work will be a reflection of you are, making this not only a creative journey but also one of self-discovery.
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 painting techniques and methods, stimulating your creativity and building your personal painting 'toolkit'.
About the classes: I am an experienced art tutor, who aims 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.
