Melbourne based contemporary artist giving art lessons to adults pursuing artistic interest

Methodology

Life drawing, watercolour/acrylic painting, collage, and botanical drawing are the main field of the lesson. I also structure my lessons customised to your interest of these fields (or if you want to try something new!). I often do visit home style lessons, as well as outdoor sessions where we can paint/draw outside.

Background

Graduated from the University of Melbourne with Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours, I am an practicing contemporary artist based in Melbourne specialised in drawing, scratching/imprinting, and painting. I have taught art to people including children, young adults and adults from diverse cultural background in an art institution based in Singapore. I am passionate about guiding people to learn and pursue their interest in their art-making.
