Below is feedback from people who have attended private tuition sessions at my studio.

  • Kim has won me over with her welcoming and inclusive style of teaching, Liberally scattered with fun asides and quiet reassurances the time flew. My biggest compliment: I didn't want the sessions to finish.  [What did you like about your experience?] On the Art side: using the big plate made a huge difference. I want to get one but they just don't seem available at the moment. On the non-Art side: very much enjoyed our chats, how welcoming you were and how much your passion seeped through to me. You have a very inclusive way of teaching which really appeals to me. We were in this adventure together!

  • Kim your planning was great. Stuff was planned but you were still able to absorb my non stop questions. Loved that fact you were totally devote to us. You were not trying to do your own work to sell later. It was big brain dumb, here is hoping my brain can remember some of this stuff right?! You were very patient with us i thank you for that. We went A little over time which i was conscious of and you did not try to boot us out the door, you let thus finish off that last bit.

  • We had a great time! I felt like I started back on the horse again and I learnt a great deal from doing the circuit technique and the mountain layering. I have also been thinking of new experiments. I will definitely be doing more in this space!

  • Kim was great and tailored our time to the area that I was interested in for my current studies. She gave clear directions where she demonstrated the process and then I did the process by myself. Kim also gave me interesting research from the history of this process and current artists using techniques and styles I am interested in exploring. The one on one workshop allowed me to learn a lot of information in a short time and not feel overwhelmed.

  • I did a one on one session Mono printing session with Kim and found her to be warm, friendly and very generous with her knowledge. I really liked the variety of ideas and techniques she explored during our time together and feel this will be positive for extending my own work in watercolour. I would highly recommend Kims workshops for anyone who is looking for a fun day to play and leave their woes at the door. It would also be great for someone in a creative rut who needs some fresh ideas and inspiration too.

  • Thank you for a comprehensive and enlightening session Kim. I came with a bunch of questions about materials and process and left much wiser, but also with much homework. A very valuable few hours indeed tailored for exactly what I needed.

  • I am delighted to have met a genuine teacher, Kim has the skill to guide her students on their journey. Two days of one to one has me happily suffering brain burn, and as soon as I fully digest what I have been so fortunate to learn, I am going back for more.

  • Kim was absolutely fantastic! I booked a private lesson as I wanted to fast track my knowledge about different aspects of printmaking. Kim was so generous with her knowledge and such a joy to learn from. I got so much out of my time with Kim, I left feeling confident and inspired to continue my journey as a printmaker!

    Megan, Mudjimba Private Tuition
  • My one on one tuition with Kim was so worthwhile. She was very generous with all the information provided I also had heaps of questions so we covered a lot during the time and I went away excited and motivated. Thanks so much Kim!

  • For many years I’ve been searching for an art medium that I can get excited about and now, at this late stage of my life, I’ve found it. Something unknown and unexpected, a passion - perfect for my ageing and rheumatic hands, simple processes I can indulge in on a daily basis, and yearn for when other duties call. I became inspired less than a year ago after visiting a printing exhibition of aboriginal lino cuts. But what to do? A search on Google took me to Kim’s inspirational website and the decision was made. I wanted to get started there and then and so I decided to take a one-on-one session - four hours of entry into this new world. It was just what I needed. Entry level, slow paced, hands on, with fabulous colours and beautiful papers, and take-home gorgeous works of art. I not only learnt the basics of lino printing, but Kim very wisely offered an alternative for when my hands aren’t functioning so well - gelli printing, and it is this that now sustains me. I recently took another individual workshop with Kim, this time to discuss my progress and go deeper into the unlimited possibilities - Kim is such a good teacher - listening, reflecting, guiding and encouraging. I can’t recommend her highly enough - I’m hooked for life, and will return to her studio as often as I can.

  • I had the pleasure of attending a private workshop with Kim to extend my gelatin plate printing skills, discuss registration and to play with cyanotyping. Kim provided extensive and well researched information in an organised and thoroughly enjoyable morning. I look forward to my next workshop.
