It was my first time working with pastels and I was incredibly pleased with the results! Gaynor was able to make me comfortable with pastel techniques very quickly and also recommended me the best materials to use going forward! I’d recommend her to anyone - she really is a masterful teacher for all levels of students!

My husband and I had such a lovely day. Gaynor was very knowledgeable and happy to help us. She started from scratch and gave us step by step guidance to produce final pictures which we were absolutely delighted with. I feel whether you have talent or not, Gaynor will draw out your inner artist. My husband, although artistic, hasn't taken up a pencil in 25 years, but he created such a magnificent piece of work that I feel he will continue with this very therapeutic pastime. Thank you Gaynor.

I haven't tried producing any art since my school days 30 years ago so I had fairly low expectations for the end result of my pet portrait. However, I was extremely happy and actually very surprised that the portrait of my dog came out so true to life! I have received so many compliments on the portrait, but the credit goes to Gaynor for breaking down the process in such an easy to understand way. It just goes to show that drawing and shading can be a learned process and that you do not need to be a natural! Gaynor is very knowledgeable and approachable and her methods are easy to grasp, so I cannot recommend her course highly enough.
