I am an Associate Artist for Unison Colour, the UK's premier soft pastel manufacturer. I have attended many workshops to learn from some of the best artists in the country and I share the best bits in my workshops. I love to help people discover the fun and utter relaxation of a few hours of creativity and see their delight at their finished work.
