Who will I be taught by?

Hi, I'm Fiona your tutor for this monoprinting course.

I am a printmaker and lecturer and I have been teaching for over 15 years both privately at my studio and at university. I have taught 1000s of students over the years, helping them find their style and develop their creative confidence.

I love sharing my passion for creating, and believe that we can all draw if we are encouraged and shown some easy ways to begin.

I did no art qualifications at school, it wasn't until I hit my 30s and returned to college to retrain that I began my own creative journey and I can remember how scary it can be to try something new, but also how exciting it can be to discover how much fun it is too.
