 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 I won an art competition, 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 10 years I have got back to basics, picking up paint brushes again instead of a mouse all the time. My Nan taught me to knit when I was about 8 years old. Mum taught me to sew and I have always been interested in craft. It’s all creative and all connected.

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.
