Notes from the Atelier


Notes from the Atelier


After working on it for the last 18 months, I am delighted to tell you that I have finishing writing, illustrating and designing my instructional book, ’Notes from the Atelier’.

The book is a collection of 32 of my weekly drawing and painting workshops, providing a programme of exercises designed to build skills cumulatively using a variety of media, strategies and subjects.

Preview of the book can be found here > ISSUU

Guiding students through the steps required to develop a new way of seeing the world, the fully illustrated book provides an accurate reflection of lessons from the studio. Fresh, practical advice on the creative process, to empower students to enjoy the learning experience and to draw and paint better than ever before. With over 245 pages, and a foreword by artist PJ Lynch, the book is packed  with over 500 illustrations and photographs. The artwork was done by me and over 50 of my students.

I am self-publishing the book and have just received the first copies from the excellent printer, GPS Colour (printed in Belfast and bound in Dublin). It is hard backed. The launch, which includes a display of artworks by around 50 students and myself, will be on Sunday 2nd April, at The Engine Room Gallery, Belfast.

The pre order cost is £35 plus P&P. (After the launch the price of the book will be £40 Plus P&P)

P&P costs:
UK = £5
Ireland & Europe = £15
Rest of the World = £22

Everyone who orders a book will be invited to the launch to collect it. The launch will include a display of artwork of my current students. 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. 

Best wishes
