Testimonial from recent 1-2-1 student:
Although I already do painting and drawing using various media Esther’s tuition significantly increased my knowledge in the two aspects we covered – pencil and oil - and gave me a “starter for ten” in other techniques.
I have no hesitation in naming Esther as one of the best tutors I have ever studied under. Esther blends a very high standard of personal knowledge with the ability to pass on information – which is crucial in any tutor.
In my opinion Esther should be “the go-to “for anyone who is considering starting art or improving their own abilities. Keith Bell
