I've been drawing since when I was a kid, I picked up watercolour as I really like the visuals you can achieve with that medium.

I taught some art workshops while I was in uni, and later continued it part-time. But I was passionate enough that I switched over to do this full time.

I draw in my diaries as a creative way to record my daily life and memories.

I particularly love drawing food (I just love food too much) and still life.

I find watercolour painting to be a very therapeutic hobby.

Hope to see you at one of my future classes!

Blair was very nice. I think the class would be even better if we had more interaction with a step-by-step check on our work as well to maybe point out what we're doing wrong or doing right. Otherwise it would be a bit like watching a YouTube video.

The course,today, was well conducted and enjoyable. I will continue during the week mixing colours and the watercolour merge. Our teacher was very clear in her delivery. Thankyou MaureenRidgway

I joined a private virtual watercolor lesson with a group of friends. Most of us have little knowledge on watercolor and it’s good to learn some basic techniques and start painting! Blair was very friendly and approachable. We all enjoyed the lesson!
