I qualified from Leeds University in 1992 with a degree in Business Studies and Education, and Qualified Teacher Status. Through the tumbles of time I was a programmer for ten years, a teacher for seven years and have many years’ experience taking IT and computer based courses for children, youths and adults.
I make sure that learning is fun, relaxed and confidence boosting, but I take learning very seriously!

The Grenville School of Painting is situated in a large, light studio, just off the colourful Gloucester Road, renowned for its cafes, delicatessens, grocers and antique shops, in a residential part of north Bristol.
The One Day a Week Course
The Grenville School of Painting will open in Bristol in September 2014, offering a unique one day a week programme of drawing, painting and printmaking, presented in the context of vital and relevant areas of art history. Finding inspiration in the work of both the modern and classical masters, which can often suggest ways of resolving our own challenges, the curriculum provides intellectual, organisational and practical tuition, both in groups and individually. It is designed with a broad constituency of students in mind, from those who have never painted before, to those who want to get back into painting after a fallow period, as well as those who are keen to move their practice forward and develop an individual voice. The one day a week course can also be seen as a foundation in painting, and will be helpful to students who are preparing for a fine art degree at art school.
As well as the weekly programme, there will be a number of 3 and 4 day workshops that continue the theme of the old summer school, concentrating on specific topics. These will be open to all students, and will be presented during the spring and summer holidays.
