I would like to thank you all for your support on
our creative journey.
We have shared many happy and memorable times with you over the last ten years.
Joanne now works for HBF and I am retiring and having a tree change
I will still be creating and continuing my journey
in this wonderful mixed media medium.
I am still an Artist Educator for Golden Acrylic paints and will be running workshops
in that capacity as well as mixed media workshops and lots more adventures.
I will keep you up to date with these on my Facebook page

New Website
I have set up a new website to share with you my Golden artist educator experience.  I am still fine tuning it to work how I want it to.  Trying to figure out how to add my Golden blog to keep all in one place.  I am afraid I am technologically challenged and it always takes me ages working out how to do it.  I hope you will have a look as I am putting on tutorials that are free and anything else I can find to do with Golden paints.

Golden Demonstration at Jacksons

Following up from my last post, a reminder that I will be demonstrating Golden Products on Saturday 10 - 12 in the morning.  Come along you will pick up loads of information, bring a notebook to write things down.
I have realised that the workshop on the 9th and 10th of March will be on the same Saturday as W.A. elections.
I have decided to change Saturday's hours to 10 am instead of 9 am to give you time to go and vote.
We will extend the Sunday finishing time to 3 pm instead of 2 pm this will give you more painting time and you will not need to rush through it.  Hoping you will join me.
