"I started teaching realist portrait drawing classes in Victoria in 2008. It's been a great pleasure to have worked with many students over the years, to have encourage and supported them in their learning to draw and paint in a traditional way.

My students come from all walks of life and abilities; some are new to drawing and others are showing their work in galleries. I'm excited about the future and what it will bring.

My goal in my teaching is to meet my students where they are and teach them hands-on skills that will help them improve and develop their abilities in a supportive environment.
