Private Lessons (Sudbury)


Are you interested in private art lessons in the comfort of your own home?  Do you live in or around Sudbury, Suffolk?  Then I think I can help!  I am now offering private art lessons at £35 per hour with a minimum of three hours per session.  Please email me at if you have any other questions.  Listed below are further details.

Teaching Approach:

I am very knowledgable, patient, fun, encouraging and passionate about making painting easy to understand.  Helping students find their own artistic style is a top priority.  I offer many helpful tips about painting and artist opportunities.  Whether a beginner, intermediate or advanced, I am sure I can provide worthwhile instruction.  It is my goal for you to have a finished painting that we can both be proud of by the end of one or two sessions.

What I teach:

I can offer private demos, lessons in basic painting fundamentals (including materials explanations), colour theory (mixing colours), palette knife techniques, impasto painting (painting with thick paint), large scale painting, still life painting, expressive landscape painting, contemporary portraiture, small scale painting and plein air painting (painting outdoors).  A materials list will be provided.  Mediums: Oil colour, but can accommodate those who wish to work with Acrylics.


I have over 10 years experience in teaching art to all ages and teaching painting
classes/ workshops for Adult learners.



My schedule is quite flexible.  If you live a little further outside Sudbury, say Colchester or Bury St. Edmunds, weekends would be best for lessons.

1st half hour- checking we have all materials, set up a still life, discuss reference photo or            choose a spot to paint
