Testimonial from recent 1-2-1 student:

One of my sons gave me a gift of 4 one hour online lessons with Esther Cawley which I took up in August 2021. Without doubt this was one of the best gifts I have ever received.

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.

As ex UK military I have studied many subjects under dozens of tutors. 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 – 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.
