“For me, painting is about self expression…learn the basics, practise the techniques, conquer the fear, appreciate the challenges and off you go! I love giving people the freedom to express themselves because so many people are artistic and just don’t realise it. I believe everyone has artistic talent in them – it’s just a matter if bringing it out. That’s my job… to find that opening, nurture and encourage it, then let you loose!”
