Welcome to Artisam Studio Painting & Drawing Classes & Gallery

Like everyone I started drawing & painting at primary school. It was only when I was about 14 that I really got the bug and discovered I could draw, thank you Mrs. Norman-Draper!

I completed a Foundation Art Diploma and BA(hons) Graphic Design, then followed a corporate career in Graphic Design. In the last 9 years I have got back to basics, picking up paint brushes again instead of a mouse all the time.

In this age of fast paced lives, its more important that ever to find some calm mindful activity to take a break from the chaos. Art classes are just that – an opportunity to focus and find some me-time. I believe that whatever your level, its the process of focusing on something creative that’s important rather than whether you produce a masterpiece!

In 2015 I started teaching an evening art class in a local school, and it has grown from there. It’s been a rocky road through covid, but I am now teaching in my studio at Artisam Studio 255.
