"I must be the luckiest man in the world to be able to paint, and teach people how to enjoy painting, for a living.  People come into my studio and say how impressed they are with my artwork and when I tell them that I can teach them to do most of the styles themselves, the reaction is always the same “but I can’t draw a straight line, I don’t have an artistic bone in my body”.  I remind them that everyone has a hidden artist inside them waiting to emerge, just like a butterfly!  It’s simply a matter of finding it and releasing it with the right tools and instruction.  I have never had a failure yet, so I must be doing something right!

I encourage people to start using larger canvases to get more impact in their piece which, until now, they have been scared to do.  Painting a large artwork is no more difficult, in fact it’s sometimes easier, than painting a small artwork.  I encourage my students to be bold with colour and to cast off their preconceived ideas of what they can and cannot do with their art.  There are no rules, it’s up to you.  If everyone in the world liked the same type of artwork the Art Galleries of the world would only exhibit the same pieces.  Don’t be intimidated or stunted by the views of others, painting is cathartic and the best stress relief there is, as it encourages relaxation and takes the focus off the daily grind.

I receive emails every day from people in every corner of the world, thanking me for giving them a new lease on life through their artwork.  If you aren’t feeling encouraged yet, just read some of the feedback:

“Greetings from the USA! The DVD's were exactly what I expected. I think your presentation was thorough and solid. Although I've been an artist for some time, I've always struggled with producing a good sunset and your technique was very influential in incorporating into my style. I was able to use your sunset technique and apply it to some of my original work.”
Joey- USA

“The DVD Series was GREAT!!! Really enjoyed how easy it was to follow along.  The timing, style, and instructions were fantastic.  I have been able to create the artworks personally and am very pleased with them.  I am looking forward with great anticipation of the next series of artworks.  Any style would be great, I am a big fan of ALL that you do.  Keep it coming!!! “
John -Indiana USA

“I`ve been painting landscapes for over 20 years in oil wet on wet style and got very frustrated and bored with the style. I wanted to break into abstract and had a lot of ideas, but just didn’t know where to start. Sounds stupid, but got into a rut with my art, hence the boredom. I’ve been given a new lease on life, petrol in the engine!  Not only can’t I stop painting till early hours, but I’m using acrylic which I swore I never would. Now on my 3rd video which is so easy to do and even opened my small studio again. I just wanted to say thank you for the inspiration to get me going again.”
Andrew, Swansea UNITED KINGDOM

“Just wanted to drop a quick note and thank you for the wonderful lessons. The way you demonstrate each technique makes it easy to follow and has really inspired me to paint more. I have been selling abstract paintings for a year now and have added lots of ideas and techniques to my arsenal thanks to your videos. Thanks so much for all you have done for casual artists like me.”
Brandon- Alabama USA

“You have been such an inspiration to me. I was looking for ideas for abstract painting and found you. I have done Blizzard and it came out really well! Believe it or not, I have only been painting for 1 week yet I feel confident enough to decorate my entire home, using your techniques. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge so generously (not many artists would do that), I really appreciate it! Thanks again for being such a great inspiration to help me to enjoy my hobby.”
Avev -Istanbul TURKEY

“I am filled with wonderment at your beautiful works of art…thank you so much for sharing your wonderful techniques with us. I have enjoyed your DVD’s very much ….they have inspired me no end. I look forward to more DVD’s with great anticipation. Thanks again for sharing your gift. “

“I have purchased all your DVD’s and found them really easy to follow with amazing results. My 15 year old son recently went on his year 9 trip to Kakadu in the Northern Territory. He was asked to present a personal report on the trip, highlighting what was important to him. The sunset at Kakadu over the waterholes stood out, so he decided that a painting would best express the colour and majesty of the scene rather than words. The only drawback he had was he had never completed a painting before. I referred him to your DVD’s and we decided to combine SUNSET and HORIZON and after two attempts he achieved a remarkable piece that got him a huge round of applause. He explained that the work was 100% his own and that he was taught the method via your art DVD series which allowed him to improvise and make it his own.”
 Cara -Mt Kuring-gai AUSTRALIA

“I enjoyed the videos very much. ....I made my first piece of “art” ever..... I am going to buy more videos, and I hope you extend your lessons, so I can learn more techniques.
