Talks & Presentations

As an artist and academic one of my passions is talking about and discussing the arts and philosophy. Having owned my art shop now for over 10 years I've spent a lot of time discussing different art styles, theories, art history, modern art trends and the philosophy of aesthetics with my customers. This led me to becoming a speaker as well as demonstrator and I now enjoy visiting schools, art societies, nursing homes and clubs where I talk about a variety of subjects.

Recent talk topics: 

Art & Well being: How the use of art can positively effect human wellbring 

Selling Art: A talk about how to sell your artwork via different platforms 

Getting into art: How to jump into the work of art, how to choose what supplies to start with and how to get started.
