Amica is a fabulous artist and teacher!

I’ve just done a workshop in her new studio, where she so generously shared her knowledge and skills.

I came away with my own abstract piece, resources to continue on with and the confidence to play with the mediums again.

It was such a fun day of learning and painting. I can’t wait for the next one!!


I really loved how welcoming you were. You have a warm, beautiful personality and you make your workshops fun. Thank you for ecouraging me and boosting my confidence- it’s just what I needed.
