Education & Prizes

Summary of Education

Art education includes classes and workshops at the Ku-ring-gai Art Centre (2009 -2010), Willoughby Art Centre (2011-2014), Forestville Art Centre (2014), Julian Ashton School (2015-2016), Royal Art Society School (2016-2021).

These have been supplemented by weekend workshops in Sydney, regional NSW and Melbourne. In 2019, I had the opportunity to attend a three weeks tutored workshop on the Greek islands and twice painted in the rural canals in France. I have also studied international art workshops online.
