Hi there,

I’ve just joined A-N and am chuffed to be here :-).

I am the founder of  The Arthouse Oasis. I have always been artistic,  my speciality at University was hand drawn animation, but after graduating I gravitated towards design. I have been a graphic designer and illustrator ever since, and for the last 25 years I have built up my own Graphic Design business.

 

Then two things happened to change my direction in life. The first was that I was diagnosed with breast cancer during a routine mammogram. The second was that my daughter was being bullied at school. These two hugely stressful experiences caused a massive shift in my perspective on life. Whilst recovering from major surgery and trying to find a new school for my daughter I became more and more drawn to art as a way to increase my wellbeing. I soon came to realise that I could share the many benefits of art with others. And there the lightbulb flashed and my decision to open up an art studio was formed.

I run The Arthouse Oasis, a small art studio in Bishop’s Stortford Hertfordshire focusing on drawing, life drawing, painting and paint pouring workshops for beginners.

Thank you for joining me on my journey and I hope to meet some of you in this platform and in real life too! :-) I will be posting news and events relating to the Arthouse Oasis, if you have any questions please do ask, and I will look forward to meeting you soon.
