Hi I'm Di Skelly Heron

My other great passion in life is Art. I have earned my living since leaving school as an artist. First as a commercial artist and then as an artist and art teacher.di art-ad-shot-1web

The similarities in creating great food and great art are uncanny. It's all about passion, getting our or out own way and letting the creative juices flow

‘Art from the Heart ‘is a term I use to describe the way I teach. My primary aim is to show my students how to connect to their intuition and paint from their feelings, rather than their intellect. I believe everybody can paint, it's like everything in life the more you do it the better your skills become. Working from photos or images will help you achieve this, but painting from your own ideas can be another matter altogether.

The real challenge is being able to interpret your feelings and dreams into a work of art. I guide my students through the layers of learned responses (mental blocks) that stop them from allowing their free flowing ideas through to the canvas, without all their fears and doubts clouding the picture.

Over 25 years of teaching art has helped me to design highly effective ways to help you unblock your feelings and allow you to create stunning art.

Join me in my studio and discover your true creative power.

I look forward to meeting you.
DI Skelly Heron
