Let me help you grow as an artist, to discover your own voice and to develop that connection to yourself  that will allow you to not only express yourself in new ways, but also to create connections with collectors and Galleries.

I host workshops in England, Wales, Ireland and abroad. Many people choose private mentoring as a way to tailor make their artistic journey in a  personal voyage of discovery.

I’d love for you to join me at one of my upcoming workshops. Hope to see you soon!

Residency Ballinglen Arts Foundation, Ireland – November 2020

For the 5th year running, I have been invited to paint in beautiful Ireland. The location is stunning and the opportunity to paint in peace and tranquility is one I value tremendously.



I recently completed an advanced ‘Oil and Cold Wax Workshop’ with Nicki Heenan. I was impressed, as a teacher myself, with the individual advanced preparation Nicki had taken time to organise for each student. She had brought books and photocopies of artworks that were pertinent to each of us and had obviously thought about our needs, as students, prior to the course. Nicki was a generous and inspirational teacher. She guided us through new processes and was encouraging and supportive at each stage. Nicki was also ‘down to earth’ and we managed to learn a great deal, at the same time having fun in a relaxed environment. I can thoroughly recommend Nicki’s courses to anyone thinking about taking one. My advice would be do it!   Hilary Garlick


 Now Postponed till  2021


What we will be doing:
Get ready to discover the pleasure of working with Oil and Cold Wax Medium in landscape painting. Painting en plein air and in the studio at MISA, we will use Cold Wax techniques to create landscapes with atmosphere and depth.  We will be developing our work using a whole variety of tools to produce paintings that are powerful and exciting. Unleash your expressiveness – you will love cold wax medium.
