I try to connect people to their environment with my art. I started out as a landscape painter, but it was only through undertaking a masters degree in 2009 that I realised the best way to connect people to their environment was to take them into that environment and get them to make the art! This is now the core of my practice and through my work I specialise in outdoor education and woodland management.
My sculptures are the result of many traditional processes and knowledge absorbed from travels in the Amazon & the Arctic, as well as Europe and the British Isles. I gather
the raw materials myself and use these traditional skills over many days to create the finished piece.

What our students say
What worked for me was masses of individual attention and encouragement and positive support, the opportunity to sketch outside. These days have opened doors I have been longing to open. Thank you Greg.
Thank you Greg you’re fantastic – inspirational – very knowledgeable and very patient! Thanks for everything Greg.
Greg focused on making sure, as beginners, we had the understanding and confidence with oils.
Very enjoyable course. Just the right balance of walking and drawing/painting. Greg was an excellent tutor and I learned loads.
It was great to have 3 days to develop skills at a good pace, lots of skills and techniques very clearly explained and demonstrated. It was like a foundation in 3 days! Greg was very supportive and gave advice and direction when needed. I enjoyed the ‘field work’ but loved the studio time, a luxury for a painter like me. Thank you i’d love to come again next year.
The best three days since I last attended a course there.
Greg was fantastic. I loved the course, benefited enormously and have hardly put my paintbrush down since!
Greg gently pushed me into attempting things I would probably never try otherwise
Exceeded expectations, have done short courses at other schools and your organisation and style of tutoring was top of the list, well done all!
a fantastic experience – it exceeded my expectations and has inspired me to unleash my creativity!
Greg was very generous with his time and knowledge…Best experience for a long time
Greg gave an excellent overview to oil painting technical disciplines plus an introduction to charcoal and gouache. It was intense but extremely satisfying to learn and appreciate the challenge in the ‘dance of chaos vs control’!
