I am an artist and illustrator, working in watercolour, gouache, other mediums. I am often inspired by nature, ordinary things around me. I experiment with different mediums and styles, but watercolour is so far my favourite medium. I am self taught and have been constantly learning. Every time I learn something new I feel the need to share my knowledge in some way.

This is why I created this course, so I could share the knowledge and support the creatives who are just starting in watercolours or continuing. I am sure you fill find this workshop useful for you. I wish you every success in your creative journey!
