Would you like to be free from self-criticism and stagnation in your painting practice?

Would you like to experience more freedom, to feel like you are getting closer to what you would really like to paint?  OR

Do you sometimes feel creatively isolated and experience 'technique panic' when you stand in front of your canvas?

Would you rather feel connected, in-flow, interested & inspired?

You have come to the right place.


No matter where your creative process is at, you can free it further.

You can come closer to the artist YOU are.

My goal is to help you develop a personal feeling for your painting and creative process in general and a deeper sense of the world around you.


We are all creative beings, and the cultivation of this creativity is a practice.

These painting courses are: 

  • Open to everyone with a serious interest in painting including artists and beginners.

  • Abstract or semi-abstract.

  • Not fixed on techniques and at the same time... 

  • Full of technical information relevant to YOUR practice, based on your questions, obstacles and achievements during our process together.

They will give you:

  • Ongoing, one-to-one support during lessons AND in-between lessons! Yes, that's right, I'll personally be on the phone with you or via video call to help you with feedback and when you're stuck.

  • After each class, you will also receive the recording of the live session, PLUS a written summary with relevant links and references for you to review at your own pace later.

These courses are not about perfecting your technique.

They are about INSPIRING you, FREEING you, and CONNECTING you to your own capacity to know and to EXPERIMENT with CONFIDENCE.

How do they work?

Each one of these courses is planned as a "module".

Taking more than one course will give you a strong base to help you improve your painting work quite significantly. Modules will cover colour, composition, light& dark, nature-based work, narrative, and others.


The online sessions are a gathering point and a focus.


That's where we give feedback, instructions, guidance and sometimes we paint too, although most of the painting happens offline, between sessions so that you have more time.

This is why I offer free ad-hoc support in case you get stuck or have questions.

You can just call me and we have a one-to-one video call to get you inspired again.

This, pretty much whenever you need it... 

Hope you can join me on one of these courses.

If you are unable to join a course, I also offer online support outside courses, which you can book directly with me here.

One-to-one video sessions are £50/ £35 for a brief check-in, or you can buy 5 one-to-one check-ins for £150.


You can join any course as a WITNESS. This means you get access to all the video recordings, the email summaries (some of which can be very thorough). You can also be in the lessons and participate in the conversation. The only difference is that your work is not discussed, so you don't get direct feedback.

This is useful for those with limited time, who can make the live sessions but can't produce work in -between.


Hope to work with you soon!
