I enjoyed every minute of Denise's workshop. I've never painted before and Denise made me feel at such ease and guided me to creating something I never thought I would have been able to. I highly recommend anyone to go and discover their creative side!

This is a lovely course for anyone wishing to explore their potential artistic talent or build on existing skills. I had not picked up a paintbrush since I took Art A-level 20 years ago. Denise’s talent and enthusiasm for her subject is evident, she creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere for her students and has a patient and nurturing approach that helps build confidence, whether your are completely new to painting, or like me incredibly rusty. She reminded me of principles I had long forgotten, but also taught me new ways to look at colour, create depth and pay attention to detail, I’m very proud of the work I have produced under her guidance. I would highly recommend this course to anyone with an interest in Art, not only as a place to build technique and knowledge, but also as a fun, relaxing and pleasant way to spend a day, in picturesque surroundings.

Me and my fiancé did this course and Denise was amazing- so friendly and helped us along every step of the way. Great for all abilities too as I have never been very talented in painting but with Denise’s help I was able to make a lovely painting that I will treasure. We will definitely be back!!!

The workshop with Denise was a wonderful surprise birthday gift!  The course states it is informative, liberating and therapeutic and I certainly found this to be the case. I thoroughly enjoyed my day with Denise and came away with a real sense of achievement! Starting the day as a novice I took home with me two pieces of art work I can proudly hang on my wall.   
In a lovely, homely setting I had a wonderful relaxing and creative time! A welcomed distraction and the perfect day! Would highly recommend and I can't wait to return for another class. Thank you so much Denise for such inspiration!

I enjoyed a relaxing creative day at Denise's acrylic painting workshop on Saturday. Denise's professional and friendly approach to teaching and on the spot demonstrations of technique were invaluable and I knew from the start that I was going to enjoy myself and learn new ways of working! Her guidance, attention to detail and wealth of experience and technical knowledge helped me to build on existing skills to produce a painting that was vibrant and enchanting. Denise has a way of enabling you to achieve high standards while still retaining your own style and is sympathetic to all aspects of the artwork you are making so that the work stays fresh and nothing is overworked. Denise also ensured that I was comfortable and well fed and watered ! I thoroughly recommend this tutor to beginners and people of all levels and will definitely be booking another workshop.

I so enjoyed my day. I am not a natural artist but I came away feeling so please with my art work. Denise is such a talented lady and so good at teaching her students..with gentle encouragement and getting me to look for detail and colours. I really hope to go back for more tuition sometime and recommend the day to anyone..from the beginner to the more skilled artist.

I had a great day today rekindling my love of painting with Denise - who was so helpful and encouraging. Denise is a fabulous artist who works with all sorts of styles and materials so whatever your personal style is or whatever materials you prefer to work with, she can help with tips and guidance. She helped me a lot with colour choices and mixing. Relaxed, friendly and therapeutic - what a great way to spend the day - thanks Denise 😊 Andrew Appleby

I’ve been attending an art group on a Thursday with Denise for about a month now. I thoroughly enjoy my time with the group and Denise is on hand to pass on a wealth of knowledge and encouragement. The environment is both peaceful and motivational and it’s a pleasure to share a few hours of creative relaxation with lovely people. I would wholeheartedly recommend Denise to anyone wishing to explore their creativity.

I’ve been having weekly 2 hour art lessons with Denise since May and a real novice but Denise has given me confidence to paint and understand the techniques and colours. It’s also a very social 2 hours. Totally recommended.

Denise, I just wanted to thank you so much for yesterday. Now I'm looking at my painting with fresh eyes I'm really pleased with it. It's exactly how I saw it in my head, and I prefer it to the painting I showed you that I wasn't happy about. I'm going to finish it today and bring it with me next week for your critique. Thanks for all your advice, it's really helped me a lot.
