“If you hear a voice within you say you cannot paint, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.”
Vincent van Gogh


A big welcome to my art class web site. Don't hesitate to get in touch by using the simple form on the left -I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Have a look at the video below to hear what some of my students are saying about my alla prima oils and acrylics class in Dublin. You can read a small bit about me here.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What level do I teach?
I welcome everybody from complete beginners who've never held a brush before, to intermediate painters who just want to hone their skills.

How many students are in each class?
There are only up to 6 students at a time at my 'in-studio' classes which provides an almost one-to-one level of attention.

What do classes involve?
There's a complete demonstration at every class. This will give students an overall view of the process of painting 'wet-into-wet' or alla prima oils. Then students will either paint objects from life or use photographic landscape references under guidance. The aim is to finish a painting at each class.

Is there any outdoor work?
During the spring and summer months (and when the weather holds out!), we make occasional field trips to local spots. For more focussed outdoor trips, I organise them as weekend workshops.

Why should I choose this painting class instead of another?
I give no-nonsense tuition about all aspects of painting -from creation to how to build your artistic career. You'll receive my full attention and support as there are only ever small numbers in class. This is a friendly, encouraging and engaging environment. There's free tea/coffee and biscuits and a cosy stove lit!
