I'm a Brisbane-based artist, and I've been painting and drawing since my early childhood days. I was fortunate to receive a scholarship from the Queensland Art Gallery, which gave me ample opportunity to pursue my passion and hone my skills.

I'm very much inspired by the beauty and diversity of Australia. Many of my paintings focus on landscapes, surreal, animals and people. North Queensland is a particular favourite, and you'll see the influence of coral seas and mountain landscapes throughout my artwork. I have a post-impressionist style through which I try to capture the wonder of the world around us.

I specialise in pastel on card, and acrylic on canvas, though I'm also experimenting with abstract and air brush.

I've been fortunate enough to display my work in many art exhibitions, and have been the recipient of many prizes and awards.

Paint and Sip Class at Waterloo Hotel Wynnum


The teacher was lovely and helpful. The venue really screwed up her presentation by making the whole group move. She was calm and helped us transition into a much noisier location than she had been given. Her attitude to this disruption helped participants take it with good humour.

Paint and Sip Class at La Dulce Vita Cucina


The venue was spacious and well lit and comfortable, and we had a lot of fun!
It was difficult to see/hear the teacher in such a big group, so we had to get a lot of help from the support staff which took a while. Hence, we felt rushed towards the end, right when the painting got challenging!
A smaller class or an earlier start would've been better.

Teacher was very helpful and the 4 of us had a ball. A really fun night, everything provided and such great value for the amount of entertainment we had. Will definitely go again. I do wish they could run another night earlier in the week though when it’s not so busy at the hotel, otherwise it’s an excellent venue and we all had a meal first.

Paint and Sip Class: BYO Friday City Night


Class was well organised, venue was a little noise as there was a night club next door.
The teacher was good, however, it did feel like he wanted us to replicate his painting and not express our own interpretation.

Wesley and his assistant were very good tutors. Whilst I am very new to painting, the instruction and set up was tremendous. The value for money and fun from the class will have me returning. Thank you Wesley.

Paint and Sip Class at Waterloo Hotel Wynnum


This was a really fun activity. Venue was noisy and numbers were large but teachers did their best to guide our hands towards masterpieces. Judging by lots of laughter (at times joined in on my own making steady brush strokes hard) many other folk were having a great time too. Would definitely recommend the activity and go again myself.

Good set up, the teacher was very helpful with explaining how to comlete the painting. I did better this time.


Nicole Kilpatrick  •  Aug 2020

Paint and Sip Class at Waterloo Hotel Wynnum


The teachers were lovely. The venue at The Waterloo was perfect as we got to have dinner and drinks beforehand and walk straight into the class. As far as value for money I was very satisfied as we paid $25 for our tickets and think that is great value . The $45 original price I feel would be great value for money if it included drinks and nibbles . If I had to pay full price I don’t think I would go again. But at $25 I will be a repeat customer along with all my friends. If you are looking for a great night out I would recommend highly.

We booked the Australian landscapes session and the booking said it started at 7:00. When we go there it was a portrait session and they were 30 mins in. Then the attendant made the whole thing weird and it was horrible.

Everything was good. The experience was very nice. Some suggestions:

Please keep extra plates to mix colors.

The cloth provided to dry the brush was very wet. Please provide dry cloth.

Please start the class on time.

Awesome session in the evening from Wesley Taylor studios. Teacher will teach you right from ground up. In between the session, many tips are shared. You will never run out of colors or assistance as someone will be always around to check on you. Even though its a group class you get personal attention. Moreover the session is full of fun, laughs and enjoyment. The best feeling you get at the end is the master class you produce. Mine Angel fish was the biggest in the class :) Best to see all the encouraging words form the teacher. Communal bar venue is perfect as it is in CBD and close to public transport. Even if anyone has not touched brush or paint in their entire life, try this at least once. It will be addictive. I bet on it. Thanks Wesley Taylor studio I am booking one more session in coming month !

We had a group of girls celebrating a Hens weekend. The class is a great idea for a group of friends. You each get a drink on arrival. Wes was an fantastic teacher, very helpful and funny. Would definitely recommend this class, even if you cant paint! Because none of our group were very confident at the start! But they all turnes out amazing!

Teacher was great and it was a very fun night. The only downside was the full room was really hot and being part of the mantra apparently they couldn’t turn down the air con. Apart from that it was a really good class and great fun!

Our team booked a paint and sip class with Wesley for our end of year party and had such a great time. Wesley was very funny and a fantastic teacher and, surprisingly, I walked out with a pretty decent painting! We were very happy with the whole experience and I would definitely book Wesley again.

A relaxing, friendly evening learning the skills of painting. It was incredible value for money with a bonus spectacular view of the city night scape.

What a fantastic experience. Wes was an excellent guide and teacher. He had a very relaxed style and was easy to understand.
During the class we explored many hidden gems of Southbank, and learnt how to compose them into some terrific pictures.
Would recommend to both locals and visitors.
Thanks for a lovely afternoon

Paint and Sip Class: BYO Friday City Night


My friend and I really enjoyed the Paint and Sip class.
The theme was painting a sea turtle in the ocean.
The teacher was very approachable and supportive.
We had enough materials to paint a beautiful picture.
The class was held in Mantra hotel. The environment had a nice ambience to paint in.
The class was worth going to and it was a nice night out for a calming art therapy session.
I would be interested to return and would recommend this class to anyone who would like to do an activity during the night.

Jess was really nice and helpful, she assisted us in every way at all time that no one was left out and we all enjoyed. Her instructions were very clear that made every step easy to us. At the end I couldn't believe what I had achieved for an absolute beginner! It's beyond my expectations.
