Hello! I hope you are safe and well in these crazy times.
I have just published my third Skillshare class: Bite-sized Botanicals - Heritage Carrots!
It's short, project based class. Watch it in under 30 minutes. Paint along, or complete the project in your lunch break or after dinner!!
The perfect something to do during these times of isolation and endless at-home-ness.

I'm so excited to be included in this month's SurfGirl magazine! I copy arrived in my letterbox and it looks beeeeyoootiful! I've written a tutorial for creating your own quiver of surfy bookmarks.
I was also interviewed for the SurfGirl website and you can also see me painting over there too!

My 'Level Up Your Watercolours - Master Layers' class is up on Skillshare. I'm really excited about this one because it is designed for beginners to help students master the fundamental skill of watercolouring: Layers!
It is the key skill to building depth, and adding detail and definition to your watercolour illustrations.
From my experience teaching classes in person, this is the concept that is foreign to many students. So I've created a class that builds, lesson by lesson, to help you master complex layering. For the final project we paint a sea turtle.
In the class I cover: transparency, glazing, order of layers, mixing washes, negative painting, and complex layering and loads more.

Gouache is a versatile, water-based medium that has enjoyed a recent resurgence in popularity. It has a lovely opaque, velvety quality and is perfect for augmenting your watercolour paintings.
I created this class because I used to find gouache kind of mysterious. I loved the look it produced, but what was it? And how do you use it? Plus, I had heaps of watercolours, so I didn’t want to go out and buy a whole new range of paints…
So I came up with 3 techniques that will give you the confidence to paint with gouache AND seamlessly combine gouache and watercolour in your artwork!
This class is for beginner painters through to experienced watercolourists who are new to gouache and want to expand their portfolio. You will add a range of techniques to your quiver and learn to plan your painting with confidence!
You’ll start to look at your paints in a whole new way!
I’ll teach you a range of techniques before we embark on our final project where we put it all together!
The lessons will cover:
