Good teachers

Sometimes I think about what I will do when I win the lottery and can give up all this working and commuting nonsense and do an art degree. Then I look at all the workshops and classes I've done over the past few years and realise that I more or less have done an art degree. If you think of the time and the money. And the expertise and skill of all the artists... 

Sometimes you don't appreciate what you have, thinking about what you wish you had. But it makes me think how lucky I've been to meet them all and work with them. And how lucky too that they're all such patient, knowledgeable teachers, as well as gifted artists. 

So below is a list of the artists with links to their websites and studios, under the workshop that I've taken with them. (Please click and check out their work, you won't be sorry.) It's a useful record for me,  as well as a thank you to them.

(I should also mention my friend Philippa Merrett who  I met at ELP, who as well as being an inspirational printmaker has generously got me in to life drawing classes at the RA and many an exhibition there.)
