Hi, I'm Kate. Welcome to my website.  I am a Zimbabwean artist living in France.

I teach mixed media art and printmaking.

I also hold creative retreats from my studio here in the Gers region of south west France.

Art Retreats, Online courses, weekly classes and one-to-one tutoring. 

Choose your creative learning experience . It will be tailor-made just for you.

I will plan your sessions based around your needs. We can leave out the stuff you don't enjoy and concentrate on your own personal goals - you have my undivided attention! 

I teach the following mediums:

Drawing: pencil, charcoal, pen, inks. coloured pencils, pastels, chalk & more.

Painting:  Acrylics, watercolours, inks, natural pigments, collage and mixed media.

Printmaking: Lino, collagraph, monoprints, easyprint & combinations of printmaking techniques.

The subject matter here is endless - with beautiful skies, hills, trees, mountains, rivers as well as the tiny details of nature ~ all begging to be represented on paper or canvas!

        See here for more details.

The Drawing Room Studio began in Sussex, England, where I taught Fine Arts in mixed media to adults and children.  Moving to France meant a new studio and the continuation of my teaching, in a wonderfully inspiring setting. The studio is now in a restored barn, in the heart of the countryside.  Here in the Gers region of south west France, we are surrounded by beautiful landscapes and mountain views.

The perfect place for creativity!

My aim is to facilitate an exciting journey into creativity for everyone who attends my classes. It doesn’t matter whether you are a complete beginner who has never lifted a paintbrush before or a professional artist who just wants to improve their practice, you are very welcome here!
