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!

This was a great class! Everything was well organised, and the food was delicious, served beautifully and in generous portions. We liked the fact that every booking had their own private table, yet the group was seated together. Blair was a very nice teacher who obviously thought well about the assignment she gave us. She made sure everyone learned new things but that it wasn't too challenging for total beginners. A very entertaining workshop, we learned a lot and went home with a nice result to keep.

The class was great for beginners like myself. There was enough time to draw and paint as well as enjoy the delicious food & cocktails at Madam Shanghai. Blair was always available for questions & painting tips.
