Join me in 2025

Join me in France in September 2025 for a really exciting opportunity to learn my botanical watercolour techniques, whilst enjoying a fabulous French escape

I am really excited to announce that I will be teaching a very special week long course at the enchanting Clos Mirabel Atelier in September 2025. Clos Mirabel is in an incredible location, beautifully situated in south west France, and it is already world famous for it’s painting atelier retreats.

This will be my only in-person course of 2025, and I am hugely honoured to have been invited to create the most magical botanical painting course focusing on one of my favourite subjects. Fading blooms, and the mysteries of decay have always held an incredible fascination for me. Their fragile, almost ethereal quality really does have a story to tell, and for me, botanical painting is all about capturing those intimate moments in a flower’s life. I hope to welcome you so you too can find and capture your own perfect imperfection.

The course at Clos Mirabel runs from the 13th – 20th September 2025.

More details will follow, but if you would like to know more, including the full week’s programme, please visit my course page on the¬†Clos Mirabel¬†website for more information. Or, you can message me direct via my Contact Page
