Art Courses in beautiful Norfolk

Elements - Land Weather Sea Sky

Nature offers me beauty, peace, and drama. I am interested in the sublime, wild places and relish exploring space and place through different experiences; physical, emotional, metaphorical and transcendental.  I absorb the expansive North Norfolk landscape, Cornwall's wild Atlantic coast, the gigantic journeys of migratory birds, the sound of tidal waters. I feel a sense of freedom amongst the elements. Land, sky and sea feeds my imagination and offers me insight into my own existence. My sensory experiences are elevated next to nature where paradoxically I feel connected yet liberated.  Nature is my steady weight.  My fixed point.


The more I experience, the older I become I realise that for my creative process to flow it has to be an emotional response something I experience, I see, feel, touch, hear. The dramatic headland of Pendeen cliffs, Cornwall are awe-inspiring. Dark, sublime, the Atlantic surge crashing below. A weather front arrives; wind, rain, envelop us. We are amongst it, we are one with it, we capture it.

My courses are suitable for new artists, those with no previous experience and also those who are already confident with their creativity. I promote a supportive and welcoming working environment, encouraging confidence, self-expression, ideas and individuality. Courses are kept small to ensure that you have plenty of quality attention.

Brilliant workshop, never done anything this before. The start of something new, felt at ease in the class. Excellent, thank you.



Lovely experimentation with inspiration from using two wisely chosen artists. Caroline is so helpful. Resources great. Thank you.


A great workshop and what an amazing variety of work produced.
