Tutor / Lecturer / Speaker:
Art History, Painting, Drawing


My aim is no longer to create future art historians, but to nurture an enthusiam in we 'lifelong learners' for the art we look at in art galleries.

I hope to help train the eye and the mind to explore the art we see, 
and at which we often only glance as we pass.

I hope that this will make holiday visits to galleries and stately homes a little more meaningful, and awaken a further understanding of the people and places of the past.
