I hold two regular weekly classes on the outskirts of the beautiful historic city of Bath, have run courses for the City of Bath College and the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol and was a visiting tutor for the Chelsea School of Botanical Art.
As well as teaching workshops for groups around the UK, I have taught as far afield as Moscow, New York and Transylvania. During the pandemic I taught online via Zoom, and produced pre-recorded tutorials.

Over the past year or so, I have had the privilege
to deliver a number of Zoom workshops and courses for various botanical art groups worldwide. The subjects covered include: 'Outside the Box', 'Autumnal Leaves', Wet-In-Wet for Botanical Art' and 'Celebrating Imperfection'. EMAIL if you would like a similar workshop for your group.
At the start of 2022 I worked with online course provider DOMESTIKA to produce a course focusing on painting a botanical portrait of fruit. See the introductory video here or on the Domestika site.
During the Pandemic, I also devised some pre-recorded online courses - 'Botanical Colour' and 'Texture and Detail'. These courses were six sessions, delivered over twelve weeks with the options for peer-to-peer support and tutor feedback. There were also shorter Spring Flowers and Festive Foliage courses. Whilst very popular, I'm taking a break from repeating these courses for now, though is still possible to view a few short videos on YouTube.
TRANSYLVANIA PAINTING TRIP
In September 2024 I will be returning to Copsa Mare, Transylvania to lead an exclusive class depicting the wildflowers found on the unspoilt meadows there.
As my focus is now primarily on hosting botanical art online talks, other face-to-face workshops have not been rescheduled. However, watch this space for updates or SIGN UP to be kept in touch about new courses, talks, online tutorials or other botanical art resources.
