I absolutely love the way Heather teachers. It’s a fantastic course! It is so worth it! My heart ached to be able to paint like this.. and I did! You will learn about building your confidence, about why you paint, techniques! You learn so much! If you want to be part of a group where everyone is supporting each other from all over the world, this is it, go for it! Enjoy it! What I found amazing was doing the small pictures made it doable. Because they are small, and you finish them, you go through feeling like its not working, but we kept going and suddenly it appears, and you end up with a picture you are happy with! Its quite amazing to see what you have achieved. Now I am able to do my own paintings with confidence. If you join, Ill see you in the group on Facebook!

"The Oil Painting Made Easy course is within reach and achievable. Each painting takes you out of your comfort zone to do something you have not done before. I had never painted a wave or hands. This course has inspired me now to give anything a go. You can do anything if you try. You can stun yourself with what you can produce!"

"Painting with Heather helped me in a time of grief.

My connection with Heather's classes was profound at a time when grief at the loss of my daughter was consuming me. It brought me some joy through being creative and I was able to immerse myself in something to quiet my mind."

"I would not be where I am with my art or with myself without this course. I feel like this course has taken me from being terrified to even begin - to being encouraged that If I will begin, I can do something. I have learned a lot and now see things differently and I appreciate Heather’s constant encouragement. It's not just a technique experience is a growth experience. It has been fabulous, just perfect for what I needed at this time.

"It's been a real gift to me. A gift of time, and a gift of space, that has really given me a better sense of myself, feeling more confident and connected both to others and to myself at a time when things had become quite tricky and I had become quite isolated. I encourage people to join, not only will they learn a new skill but also have a deep reflection on themselves and using painting as a process for that.
