Come along and enjoy my friendly and joyful art classes and workshops. Using the magical translucency of watercolour, I will demonstrate and guide you through a complete painting from start to finish, sharing all the tips and techniques needed step-by-step. I will break the subject down into easy to understand sections, and give you lots of practical guidance and support. I cater for all levels, from complete beginners who have never painted before to practiced artists who want to try out some new techniques – everyone is welcome.


Painting is a wonderful way of stepping away from the hubbub of daily life – there is no right or wrong in art, so you can’t fail – there is only learning and growth. We will use colour to capture the mood and essence of our subject and our emotions, and enjoy the value of art for the ‚Äėjourney‚Äô, not just the end result.¬†In addition to immersing yourself in a beautiful painting for a few hours, we always make time for tea and cake! All in a lovely, relaxed and happy atmosphere of creativity.

“The course has been brilliant, Carrie is an excellent teacher and made everyone feel welcome.”¬†¬† :¬† ‚ÄėThoroughly enjoyed the art classes, learning how to do things I never believed I could! Really helped my confidence and ability to relax”¬† :¬† “I learnt lots of techniques, would love to attend more.”¬†¬† :¬† “Carrie was a great supportive teacher. The workshop was brilliant”

THE ART OF BRUSHO Рa step-by-step guide to beautiful paintings. Packed with tips, techniques and inspirational ideas, you can follow the practical step-by-step demonstrations in this book at your own pace and in the comfort of your own home. Let me take you on a creative journey of start-to-finish demonstrations, exciting techniques, and special effects such as using Brusho with starch, soap, bleach, gesso, granulation medium, acrylic ink, etc. Similar to watercolour, Brusho mixes with water, but has its own unique and delightful properties, allowing you to create striking, colour rich and impressionistic images. As the chapters unfold, you will learn how Brusho colours work together, some simple composition strategies, and how to produce your own vibrant, colourful paintings by using Brusho in a range of adventurous ways. Just follow boldly along, and you’ll soon be producing paintings that zing with colour and energy.






BRUSHO COLOUR MAGIC РDesigned as a sequel to The Art of Brusho, this book will lead you through an art-filled adventure of colour and creativity. It will encourage you to step beyond realism and push colour to capture the mood and essence of different subjects with these little pots of Brusho magic. Brusho Colour Magic aims to take you to the next glorious colour level with plenty of step-by-step demonstrations and guidance on managing colour to achieve innovative, vibrant paintings. Brusho Colour Magic aims to inspire both old and new readers to try out more Brusho colours you haven’t considered before, or use the colours you have in different ways. There is lots of brand new subject matter to enthuse you, along with 11 step-by-step demonstrations that show how colour can be maximised in your own paintings. Whilst my first book, The Art of Brusho, dealt with the basic techniques in more detail, you will still find all the instructions you need to be able to complete the demonstrations in this follow-up book, Brusho Colour Magic. Be prepared for another colour-filled adventure with Beautiful Brilliant Brusho!
