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!

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!
