TREAT YOURSELF TO A CREATIVE WEEKEND ON THE SAPPHIRE COAST 

I invite you to come to Merimbula, where I live on the beautiful Sapphire Coast, NSW. Yes, our beaches are clean and white, our water is the colour of sapphires and our climate the most temperate in Australia. Perhaps you might like to take a break and immerse yourself in your artistic endeavours whilst still taking some time out to visit wineries, local markets, try our delicious oysters, stroll on our sandy beaches or even take a dive into the pristine waters. There is so much to do here that you could come for a week and still not see it all! Why not…you deserve to take time out for yourself!

Please contact me if you’d like to have me to tutor your art group at your location or you’d like to organise your own private group of friends to come to the coast for a creative weekend of painting.
