​Having taught both private and group classes around Australia for five years, I teach because I believe more artists should share their artistic skills with others, rather than keeping their studio secrets for our sole benefit and careers. This action removes emphasis from industry-provoked competition and towards mutually benefitting community through art. Though I teach realistic portraiture, I also encourage the discovery and development of my students individual styles. This is who you are and I love to embrace this with my pupils. There is absolutely no previous experience necessary or required as I have broken down and structured my teaching into easy to follow steps and understandings.
