Gondwana Textiles Arts Consultancy and Critique Services

Professional advisory service

Individual and small group sessions

Are you a practicing artist, experienced or beginner, or a student?
Whatever your media …….  artful tips to improve your success
I enjoy assisting artists to identify and achieve their individual artistic goals.

In my long career as a teacher  almost every day saw me helping students consolidate their ideas. My post graduate study continued to address these skills.

Entering into respectful critical dialogue is an empowering tool, an essential way to explore possibilities and refine your work.  From time to time, every artist, needs to review & evaluate.  Sometimes it’s difficult to be objective when you have so much personally invested in the work.

Would you like some advice on how you might refine your concepts ?

Would you like to gain positive feedback about your folio or a piece you are working on?

Unblock restrictions to your creativity.
Receive sensitive discussion about the creative process, and about your own folio.

Would you like to see where others might take a creative inspiration?

Would you like to explore professional opportunities in your field?
