Circle of Calm

YouTube Theme for June - August 2024

  • Join my on my YouTube channel this summer to paint step-by step watercolour projects that all begin with drawing a simple circle.
  • Alongside the step-by-step projects, I’ll be creating a series of simple sketchbook exercises perfect for beginners to watercolour and for those of us who are looking for any reason to play with colour and shape! 
  • Slow painting projects for mindful creativity.
  • New videos weekly
  • Only on YouTube!

Draw with Me

Find new videos on my Drawing YouTube channel taking inspiration from patterns. You’ll find pattern prompts, doodle ideas, mandalas, celtic knots and guides on how to draw complex geometric shapes.


In person workshops with the Arienas Collective

Learn to print or paint with me in a small home setting, in Edinburgh’s beautiful New Town.

I’ve got a number of options for learning to screen print, with a focus on you being able to take what you’ve learnt and use it in your own home or studio. 

I also have a beautiful vintage tabletop letterpress, and have some really fun options for exploring making your own cards and stationery using metal type.

Make your booking through the Arienas Collective, and check their website for upcoming dates.
