I give talks and painting demonstrations to a wide variety of groups and societies and most of the groups have no connection with art whatsoever. These talks include anecdotes about my life as an artist and the emphasis is very much on entertainment. I also show samples of my work, and there are often humorous stories attached to the paintings. My demos are perhaps a little different to ones done by other artists, inasmuch that I encourage members of my audience to have a go on the painting I am working on – it can be interesting! Most of my painting volunteers have never done any painting since they left school and it’s all a bit of fun, which I think is what people need, especially in today’s world.
I don’t arrive at a talk and demo engagement with a script or much of an idea of what I’m going to paint – I ask the audience what they would like me to paint and just go with the flow. It’s all very unpredictable and always fun!
I am an approved speaker for Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire and Leicestershire County Federation of Womens Institutes and my details appear in their annual Year Books. At the moment my bookings take me to exotic locations in Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, Leicestershire, Cambridgeshire, Warwickshire and Oxfordshire and beyond – it’s all good fun!
If you would like to book me for your group or society please contact me for more information. I can promise you an entertaining time!
