Around The World Through Art

One of my greatest joys is teaching, sharing skills, which have been passed down to me, on my creative journey, by generous teachers I have had the greatest pleasure in learning from. Now it is my turn to share some of my skills- which are a mixture of a little something learnt here, picked up there – often from students – and of course in the process assembled to become something which is ‘mine’.

 I would like to invite you to a brand new art e-course, Around The World Through Art created and hosted by the wonderful artist Olga Furman at

I am delighted to be guest artist as part of a collaboration of 14 professional international artists, all sharing their unique process of creating culturally diverse artworks. Each us is offering different styles and techniques, from portraiture to visual narrative story telling art. So join us for a one of a kind creative adventure – creating art, inspired by different countries and traditions without leaving the comfort of your studio/creative space.

When traveling, I always make a point of seeking out cultural arts and crafts through paintings, weaving, fabrics, jewelry and primitive art. Memories of motifs have inspired many designs for when I used to teach  Folk and decorative art. It is always a great pleasure to share culturally specific motifs with fellow artists.

I am inviting you to join me and 13 other international artists in the Around The World Through Art course

Wildflowers from Poland

Through this course, I am inviting you to “visit” Poland with me. I am second generation Polish. I speak the language and have visited Poland several times. I will be teaching two styles of art, using painterly narrative in response to my Polish cultural roots.

My first lesson Wildflowers from Poland is a bouquet of Polish wild flowers set in a rustic container. I will teach design, an interesting background technique and a terracotta vase. You will also learn specific techniques for each flower.

For my second lesson I designed a very special naïve style icon of Our Lady who is cherished in Poland, especially in the villages. You will be able to personalize her, with your decorations and motifs.
