REVIEWS
It was a relaxed and engaging session, I have experience in drawing but haven't done it regularly in years so the casual atmosphere was appreciated to make the activity more approachable. Instructor was friendly and very informative on techniques for building confidence in drawing and offered appropriate feedback and comments throughout the class. It was a very personable class that I enjoyed at lot!

This is Isla, Ellie and Millie. Oil on canvas 27.5 inches x 39.5. They are my friends daughters. I often ask how 'the girls' are doing and there's always a funny story. Isla is full of mischief.

Title or Location: Memories of Bassano Del Grappa
A beautiful town in northern Italy - a town who protected partisans during WW2 and suffered the loss of all men and boys as retribution. Today it still bears the marks of war on the walls of the town, with the wooden bridge having been rebuilt a number of times due to war. This mosaic commission was created for a much happier reason, to commemorate a long held friendship between two families, here in Australia and there in Italy. Entirely created with hand cut pieces of glass.
