Welcome

Hi and welcome, I’m Ceri.

I help people who want to be more creative find ways to make art that they enjoy. I am especially keen to work with people who are recovering from mental illness and help them to start living their life again. My clients enjoy spending a couple of hours at a time not thinking about their troubles while they are learning ways to use paints, pencils, paper and other supplies.

I also make paintings for people who love bold, colourful art and want to be reminded of nature’s beauty. I particularly want to help brighten up any dull space and think you might be redecorating or moving home. Or maybe you are ill or grieving and some colourful art would help lift your spirits.
