I'm so delighted you're here!
My mission is to help as many people as possible learn to draw with coloured pencils, increase their confidence and realise their dreams.
So many people tell me they can’t draw. I’m here to show you can, and to teach you how to draw the most amazing coloured pencil portraits.
My coloured pencil membership, Ignite, is where the magic happens. I teach you the foundations, and give you everything you need to learn how to draw realistic subjects with coloured pencils. As a former coach, I also know how to help boost your confidence and ultimately, show you that anything is possible.
If you want to be part of something incredibly special where dreams really are coming true for so many people, then join my wait list.
