Ann is an inspirational and nurturing tutor, happy to share all the techniques she encompasses in her work. After more than 30 years teaching she has a wealth of experience of botanical art using pencils and coloured pencils and is still experimenting, discovering new ways of working with this media. The focus in her workshops is on improving drawing skills, mastering coloured pencil techniques and creating dynamic compositions. Ann demonstrates all her techniques and students are encouraged to work at their own pace with individual attention when needed. To get the best results from these workshops it is important that students bring their own equipment.
Ann’s studio in Rowde, near the old market town of Devizes, is set in a delightful Victorian walled garden and provides a tranquil and stimulating working environment. Ann is shielding during the Covid-19 pandemic so her courses both in Wiltshire and other UK locations plus her botanical art holidays abroad are on hold until further notice
