Advanced students also welcome. Your Tutor: Art has always been a part of my life, from drawing the things around me as a little girl through to a BA (Fine Arts) Honours Degree where I achieved firsts for painting and design. The vibrant West Australian art world has been an inspiration and I have taught all the different mediums since moving here 24 years ago. I have won a number of prizes for my paintings and sold extensively many to people returning to a variety of countries. What you need to bring Samples listed below, however, bring what you have and I will explain what you need. Colours Oils or Acrylics - I suggest you purchase a quality brand of paint for best results with colour mixing.
