Teaching young people to be creative is an investment in their future...Basketball star Connor
Connor is another of my long term pupils who has been with me for around six and a half years.
He has been very dedicated to art and drawing from a very early age.
He has a lovely supportive family, who really value artistic expression.
His two older brothers have also attended art lessons with me for a number of years and have created some great works. They are all natural drawers.
Connor has taken part in a variety of school mosaic projects, he has demonstrated mosaic making with me at Art in the Park and has become competent in a wide range of mediums.
Lately Connor has developed a keen interest in depicting sporting events, as he is very good at a variety of sports, particularly basketball.
Whether it be rugby, soccor, basketball or cricket, Connor is willing to take commissions. He can turn your sporting photo's into a masterpieces on canvas.
He has an interest also in depicting animals, insects and birds and has excellent attention to detail in his work.
Connor, like his brothers has always been a pleasure to teach and he helps my job to be a rewarding one because of his focus and obvious commitment to creativity.
Creative quote of the day.
Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
