Join my Painting Atelier 2025

Join me in 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 in September 2025. Clos Mirabel is an incredible location, beautifully situated in south western France, and it is already world famous for it’s botanical 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 botanical art is all about capturing those intimate moments in a flower’s life. I hope to welcome you (you can also bring a +1).

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.
