Art classes & Workshops


I run classes for adults and children from my home studio for beginners to the more experienced - all are welcome. 

I am painting all my life and have skills using different mediums & subject matters and 9 years teaching experience. I am passionate about passing on those skills and the pleasure of painting and enjoy seeing people happy with their results. See my BIO/CV for futher information about me.


My classes are relaxing, fun and informative. I have an interest in psychology and my aim is to encourage students, giving them the technical skills and confidence to enjoy learning at their own pace. I do stand over, and believe that everyone can learn how to draw and paint. It is a very enjoyable pastime whether you strive to be a professional or paint for pleasure with friends! 

Once you have 'gotten the bug' it will enrich your life and will stay with you for the rest of your life. I promise you will be proud of your very first painting.

See Facebook showcase page 'Red Apple Arts' to view students work. If you are a beginner, don't be put off, most of these beautiful paintings have been done by students who started here from scratch. You can produce a beautiful painting too. Give it a go :-)



From time to time, I do half day and full day workshops outside of the regular classes. These are an opportunity to cover subjects in detail like drawing skills, watercolour, oil still life, etc.,

Group parties or workhops can also be arranged. 

I have garda vetting and I am also a registered tutor for Kilkenny & Carlow Education & Training Board. If you have a community group and would like me to tutor your group, you can contact Kilkenny & Carlow ETB for arrangements.You can apply for funding to cover the costs of the course.
