Creating has always been my centre.
It captures me completely....
Focussing my being entirely on a concept, moulding line and colour or shape and form into being. Contemplating the story to be told. In essence I love to paint.

Current Activities:
Courses for Adults
Primarily Nina's courses are practical, informative and are tailored to meet individual goals and abilities. Though the pace of this course is moderately fast moving it is designed for enjoyment and relaxation giving students time to explore their creative ability. Courses look at all stages of working a piece - from the initial concept to the finished work.

Nina gives step by step demonstrations in different styles and disciplines - oils, acrylics, watercolours, pastels, charcoal, pen and ink and pencils.

Courses for Children
Nina has a passion for making every moment fun and interactive. Her enthusasiam and love for learning ensures that there is never a dull moment. Children have the opportunity to explore and broaden their imaginations, learning skills using a wide range of materials.

Courses are suitable for complete beginners and experienced children. All courses involve making a project suitable for the class age group (4-7yrs / 6-12yrs) . Every term provides children with a selection of new projects.
