My Assistant

  Adrian is my special helper with my art for he has skills (and time for these skills) that I do not have. If you need help or advice on particular topics that I cannot help you with, then he may assist, offer information on, or even run a special workshop or demonstration for you or your group. Here are some of the topics he specialises in: Frame making Mount cutting Putting art into mounts and frames with all the special tapes and fixings Shabby Chic frame colouring and distressing creating age and patina Frame guilding effect (cheaper than using gold leaf) Photographing artworks particularly lighting, colour balance and perspective Editing photos on computers using Lightroom (Buy) or various free editors that come with Windows. Desktop publishing such as label printing and card making using CorelDraw, Microsoft Word or similar Art web site page design using Xara Web Designer In addition to art based topics, Adrian can tutor in: Digital photography, shutter speed, aperture and ISO usage to really advanced Specialist drawing skills such as Orthographic, Isometric, Exploded Perspective Model making, kit assembly and bashing through to scratch building Plus:- Adrian can also offer classes in cabinet-making, woodturning, wood machining, metalwork and engineering, but these would have to be with your kit, at your own premises, as we do not have such items at our small establishment. A quick piece of advice or demo from Adrian is free, but for more advanced help why not spend extra time with Adrian on a topic of your choice from the above lists. His direct contact details are in my contacts web page.
