I have been teaching since 1994 both privately and for the Adult Education Service at the Isle of Wight College. Over a number of years I have run outdoor summer classes, workshops and tuition and I also enjoy demonstrating to groups. My tuition is always geared to the individual, whether within a group setting or on an individual basis and I really enjoys seeing people develop their painting skills and their enjoyment gained from this.
''Even on grey days, Becky put the colour into my painting. She is an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher and spending the day on one of her courses with a group of like minded painters boosted my confidence and improved my skills tremendously''.
Please contact me if you are visiting the Isle of Wight and would like some tuition. We have some great B&Bís, hotels and guest houses on the Isle of Wight.
