I am currently tutoring Botanical Drawing &
Illustration in Leicestershire. I am a qualified adult tutor, having
taught groups that included beginners as well as the more advanced
students. I therefore offer beginner, intermediate & advanced
tuition in these fields.
I have had a wonderful time studying in the various
Botanical Illustration Courses that I have attended. I began my studies
with Sue Graham at Leicester College. She had been a student of Anne
Marie Evans, who is a well-known Artist in this field. I gained a
Diploma in Botanical Illustration through Rosie Martin & the Eden
Project in Cornwall.
Rosie Martin is a well renowned and published Artist.
She has inspired me to pass this on to other people, and to facilitate
a students' personal journey of discovery. I promote the art of drawing
and the ability to recreate your subject with accuracy and personality.
The idea of people learning how to study plants intimately and recreate
the beauty of nature is very rewarding.
directly for more information on Botanical Drawing, Painting, and
Sue offers tuition in art, for all ages and abilities.
She is a qualified teacher with a BA (QTS) Hons in Art and Educational
Studies (Warwick University 1991-1995). She specialised in Pupil Disaffection
and has taught in both mainstream and special schools, particularly
with pupils who have emotional and behavioural difficulties. She has
researched into the effectiveness of using art as a vehicle for enabling
children to work through otherwise difficult emotions and feelings.
It offers a safe path for expression, removed from their own emotional
and sometimes traumatic issues.
Sue has worked in most media including sculpture, painting, printing,
pen/ink, and watercolour.
Using creative and imaginative methods and approaches, Sue has also
helped students of all ages to achieve success in maths and literacy,
subjects that present real challenges for many people. She has made
successful referrals for dyslexia, ADHD, OCD and ODD.
