 "When I saw this painting in Jahroc Gallery during a trip from the UK in April, I liked it very much and then immediately I saw it's title and was quite moved and began to interpret the image further.  I have never before been so dramatically affected by a work of art, Many thanks "in the beginning" - Sara

"I love the art classes!  I started in October 2017 and had never picked up a pastel before.  Ann is very knowledgeable and passionate, which is contagious.  The weekly project are challenging yet rewarding.  I felt comfortable from the first minute I walked into the studio.  Everyone is really welcoming and kind.  I've had lots of compliments about my art.  I am excited to see what next term brings". - Natasha

"Ann, you are hands down the best art teacher I have ever had.  I can't rave enough to friends and random art lovers about your art and your classes.  The amount of compliments I have from people about my work just makes me stand tall and proud and I owe it to you and  your teachings.  I will be back for more inspiration" - Tammy

"Learning of Ann's pastel class was the best thing I did.  At the time I lived alone and really looked forward to my Wednesday class (and still do) even though it is two buses and a train to get there.  It shows how good a teacher Ann is, very talented and friendly and apart from learning so much I now have a whole bunch of new friends and loads of lovely pictures I never thought I would be able to achieve.  Thank you Ann" - Ann
