testimonials

“Having not put pencil to paper for some 46 years, I approached my first lesson with some trepidation. But I was amazed at how lovely and relaxing it was to sit and draw, or paint, or collage for a few hours with Frances making very reassuring noises at my side. She helped me with techniques and ideas without taking over. She encouraged us to look at each other’s work and to stand back to view the pictures from a distance. 

I now look at pictures and views in a completely different way and have done some drawing on my own at home. I will certainly be attending more of her classes; it is one of many ways to spend one’s retirement in a rewarding and supportive environment.”

-Sarah
 

“Thanks Frances for a truly lovely day. You have so inspired me and I loved every minute. I painted better today than ever thanks to you although not perfect. So looking forward to next time. See you in two weeks. What a lovely way to spend the day.”

-Wendy
 

“Thank you for this morning. I love the freer style you are encouraging me to try.”

-Sue
 

“Thank you Frances and I LOVED today.”

-Angela
 

“I loved the collage course. Thank you. Going forward, I’d love the opportunity to continue and develop that with you.”
