Hello! I'm Chally, an experienced painter who specialises in creative education and training. I'm passionate about arts, crafts and helping others develop their skills.
I was born in Hertfordshire and lived in London, Berkshire and Kent before I settled in Oxfordshire. I'm a self-taught artist, have a Bachelor of Arts degree (Hons) from University of Kent and a professional background in Adult Learning & Development.
I enjoy using a variety of different mediums, with my main practice being Drawing and Oil painting. My paintings are colourful, loose and with heavy lines. I’m inspired by nature and, although my work is figurative, I don’t feel bound by realism or precision.
With over a decade of experience of delivering training, education and workshops to students and adult learners of various ages and backgrounds, my style of instruction is energetic, fun and interactive.
Latest Updates & Goings-On
THE SEASONS ART CLASS
I'm delighted to be working with The Seasons Art Class, delivering art classes, training Tutors and creating content. The wonderful 14 week programmes of art classes are for Adult Learners (Beginners and Improvers) and covers everything you need to know to be able to draw and paint. Have the best fun ever and create the art you've always wanted to with your supportive tutor and friends.
I'm so exciting to be taking part in Oxford Artweeks in May 2021. Come and see my latest artwork in my bright workroom, surrounded by my beautiful springtime garden (venue 58).
During the Oxford Artweeks I'll be working on new pieces, providing technique demonstrations and have a selection of completed works available for you to buy and take home.
