Welcome to my Blog

I am pleased to welcome you to my blog and though I am a complete novice when it comes to blogging I am excited by the possibilities it presents and look forward to showing you my work, the work that some of my students produce and to answering any questions you may have about aspects of the work, techniques used or just discussing painting and drawing.

Painting Holidays On The Beautiful Greek Island of Samos


New for 2012 are my painting holidays based in the lovely Amena by-the-sea Apartments in Karlovasi on Samos (above), there are four weeks to choose from June 1st to 8th or June 8th to 15th and again in October 5th to 12th and 12th to 19th. These holidays are half board (breakfast and evening meal) and includes around 18 hours tuition. The cost is 610 euros per person based on two sharing a studio apartment, non painting partners are welcome, costing 350 euros per person, a deposit of 200 euros per person will secure your place(s) on these holidays, just e-mail me with your request for your places on the holiday of your choice and I will send you a Pay-Pal invoice and upon my receipt of your deposit your place is secured. Participants are to make their own travel arrangements to Samos. As an optional extra on the free Wednesday there is a one day excursion to the ancient Roman city of Ephesus in Turkey, the cost for this would be approximately 95 euros, this includes return ferry to Samos, Transport to pick us up at Kusadasi  ferry terminal and Hakan our personal guide for the day will guide us around Ephesus, a truly magnificent piece of ancient history. If you are interested in one of these (even though I say so myself) fantastic holidays and would like more information please  get in touch, places are limited with a minimum of eight and a maximum of twelve (artists). The Island of Samos is steeped in history and is an artists paradise. Demetra, Diamantis and I look forward to seeing you there! Personally I can't wait!
