In my workshops you can expect a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. Students of all levels are welcome — if you’re a beginner, you’ll learn as much from watching the people around you as from me. If you’re looking to deepen your understanding of acrylics, develop a more creative, spontaneous approach or just reinvigorate your practice, these workshops will meet your needs. I’ll do some brief demonstrations to show you how I use layering and acrylic mediums and I’ll show you slides of other artists’ work to stir your imagination. Most of the time you’ll be painting while I move around the room making sure everyone gets the individual attention they need. We’ll end with a group critique where you’ll learn to assess your own work in progress and decide what to do next when you’re working on a painting.


A Weekend Mini-Series

Embarking on an art series needn’t be daunting! Over the course of this weekend participants will produce a mini-series of 4 to 6 small works in paint or mixed media. I’ll guide each artist in creating works that inter-relate along a theme of their choice. Students will work on several pieces at once to create consistency through the series while fostering the cross-pollination of ideas. Artists of all levels are welcome.

This workshop will be offered at the following places and dates:

April 21-22, 2018 Etobicoke

June 8-9, 2018 Bath

October 13-14, 2018 Westport
