Hi – My name is and I have been a professional artist for over 13 years!
I have created hundreds of paintings, have sold my work to public and private collections all over the world and am the honored recipient of numerous awards and bursaries.
This success is something that, years ago, I never imagined could happen for me. I strived for years to perfect my painting practice. After more than a decade of dedication and a lot of trial and error I saw results… my WORK became the REAL reward – and it attracted the success!
I am FULLY committed to sharing BEAUTY with the world through my art and I want to help you do the same, in your OWN UNIQUE way!
In this masterclass I share the knowledge I have gained over these 13 plus years of honing my skills as a painter in order to help YOU radically improve YOUR realistic oil painting techniques when painting seascapes and more.
Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate, this course can unlock your GREATEST painting skills and save you a lot of time and frustration!
You’ll learn the materials that the PROS use, and how to execute painting REALISTIC SEASCAPES that you will be proud of.
Let me be your guide and walk you through my entire process from START to FINISH as I create not one, not two, but as a BONUS, THREE hyperrealistic seascapes!
I first share the ESSENTIALS of oil painting: the painting surfaces I use and how to prepare them, my favorite paint brushes, paints and mediums, the ideal studio lighting and easels, my photo references, along with tips and tricks for those perfect compositions and more.
With a solid foundation into the essentials of oil painting, I then show you step by step how I execute THREE hyperrealistic seascapes from the VERY FIRST brushstrokes up to the VERY LAST details, including the final stage of VARNISHING.
I am here to help you on YOUR artistic journey. With this knowledge and the techniques in this course, you will not just create a couple of paintings; you will be able to create your own paintings for YEARS TO COME! Feel free to modify the process to fit YOUR UNIQUE painting style.
I know you will be so excited to share the artwork you create with family and friends.
Whether you use one of the 20 source images provided in the course or a personal image that you have snapped along the way, you can take pride in what you have accomplished.
And don’t be shy, you can also ask friends if they have a water scene from a vacation that they would like to share with you. You never know – you could be creating your first SALE!
On this painting journey I will share NEW DISCOVERIES and new ideas with you because I am always learning too and I want to keep you up-dated with the LATEST painting trends. If I add any new modules YOU will be the FIRST to see them at no extra cost.

Absolutely! That’s why I created this course – to show you how I achieve a realistic seascape painting with all it’s details. In this course I often show you a zoomed in view of my painting process and exactly how I’m achieving the finer details. This course will give you knowledge that extends past painting seascapes and will give you more confidence when painting anything realistic at all.
