My style of teaching is to encourage my students’ own style to emerge; I like people to have a go and enjoy the experience rather than be too concerned with creating a masterpiece every time. There is no pressure and I’m more than happy for people to do their own thing. I always say that there is no obligation to attend the colour therapy sessions; if folks aren’t comfortable then I’m happy for them to do their own sketching and painting in this time
My background is in art, I’ve been painting all my life, with early influence from my painter Mother, Dorrie Cullis, who was indeed a notable artist.
My paintings most often portray Somerset scenery, the Devon coast, The Algarve, Portugal. I enjoy the challenge of painting changing and shifting light in all mediums. The paintings that result are illuminated by my love of working with many and varied subjects.
I have run my own School of Art for ten years and love the interactivity with students of all ages and abilities. I’ve also been taking students to Portugal on Painting holidays since 2005. I trained as a colour therapist in 2006 and find this invaluable with both my teaching and my own painting. I have recently trained as an NLP Master Practitioner. I love working with people, helping them release their creative talent, enjoy colour and find a passion in art and nature.
