  • Unlocking Your Creativity with Isabel Coulton

    Many people think they can’t draw, whilst others get stuck. One of the biggest joys in my life is to see someone develop their artistic potential, whether a professional artist or complete beginner… We all have self-doubt – that nagging little voice that tells us what we do is no good. Learning to love yourself…

  • Gift Vouchers

    A gift voucher is a wonderful way to give someone an amazing experience. If you would like to buy a gift voucher for any amount, either for a whole set of classes or just one taster session, or even part payment for a residential (this will have to be worked out clearly between all parties),…

This panel will have the main subject painted on…

As a sculptor and carver, I like to accept commissions concerned with antique furniture or classical architecture. For this sort of work there is a stringent need to be faithful to the last degree, the ultimate millimetre or the final…
