Hi friends,


This year I am introducing “One on One” time.

I’ve often had requests for this and have now designed a way of working together that may fit your needs at certain times in your journey.

One on One time can include a wide range of topics to help focus your vision and sharpen your skills.

We will be developing your individualized sessions as best fits your needs and interests. Here are some of the many options.


Delve Further #1

Delve further into techniques in order to push your work to new heights. We will work side by side on your work on paper or board, exploring new possibilities in bringing the work to fruition. (Sometimes I will work directly on your piece, if you approve, but I will also have a separate board for demos) Demos and suggestions may range from color mixing to brush or iron techniques, active intuitive responses, careful detail, concept building and more according to the needs of the work, where applicable. Additionally, I may be suggesting ways of working with various papers and paints along with conceptual ideas to consider, artists to look at etc. This may be of interest to those wanting to push their work further, to those who are interested in building a consistent yet evolving body of work or to those wanting to learn more about themselves expressing in paint.

This is a great way to explore techniques such as collage, monotypes, texture, tinting, working large, photography and more in a more thorough manner.


Delve Further #2

Delve Further #2 can be about a wide range of topics considering your connection to the art world around you. Perhaps you’d like to get a bit more involved.

Some of the many areas we can cover are:

  • How to photograph your work and size it for web sites, blogs, Facebook or Instagram etc. How to use Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.
  • How and where to find and make exhibition opportunities.
  • Pricing your work, Artist Statements etc.
  • A tour of our galleries, possibly in a small group (fun!) or a suggestion of galleries to visit and learning more about going to openings, enjoying new artists and ways to look at, question and delve further into artist’s work that intrigues you.
  • Ways to introduce yourself to the gallery owner and or director and what kind of “homework” should happen before that.
  • Ways of using Social Media


Delve Further #3

Delve Further #3 is about Positive Critiques

Some of the many subjects we can explore here are:

  • Defining your strengths
  • Defining your direction
  • Helpful positive discussion on individual pieces and overall body of work. You’ll be bringing some work in so we can really get a sense of how it works together as a group, investigate it’s unique qualities and brainstorm from there.
  • Find new ways to implement change where need be, and push the work further.


These Delve Further “One on One’s” are: $100.00 per hour. These can be booked in 1, 2 or 3 hour sessions.

Please be in touch if you’d like to schedule in.

Many thanks and looking forward to a great year! Bonny
