I have been learning to paint for many years without much success however, 18 months under Nathalie’s tuition has seen me go from strength to strength. She is patient, long suffering (in my case anyway) a wonderfully versatile artist and able to pass on her knowledge without making you feel silly. All you get is encouragement.
