Art To De-stress

In 2006 whilst working as a qualified accountant I experienced an episode of stress which caused me to stop and take some time out. During this time art helped me immensely to manage my stress. This inspired me to research stress in the workplace and how to manage the stresses often associated with corporate roles. Combined with my own experiences this research has convinced me that art can help many more people as it helped me.

I have completed two art kit workshops with Su, having never done pastels before.The workshop is nicely paced with... plenty of time to ask questions and get advice on any problem areas. The booklet and online tutorial are also amazing resources for when I want to try the painting again afterwards.The kits include high quality materials, instructions and even a teabag or two!I would highly recommend the kits and workshops, Su is an amazing artist and more

The pastel art kits by Su contain everything you need to create a beautiful piece of art. Su explains things perfectly... through the video tutorial and includes a full instruction book with helpful hints and tips. Having never used pastels as a medium, and being in no way an artist,  I am blown away with the resulting artwork from this kit! I am amazed and rather proud of the piece I've produced. This kit has given me a new love for art and the pastel medium and I will absolutely return for another one! Thank you Su for bringing some mindfullness and colour to a dark few months and giving me a new passion to enjoy xread more

I purchased the Robin Pastel Art Kit, and not being an artist myself I was a little nervous about how it would go. But... I didn't need to worry, Su explains everything so well and guides you through each step. It is such a well presented kit too, with the pastels in their own little bag and even some little tea sachets to enjoy whilst you draw too. I cannot recommend these kits highly enough, and I will definitely be buying others too both for me and as more

Wonderfully relaxed and creative afternoon working on the robin pastel art kit. I read all Su’s blogs and website... generally and then set to work with the tutorial video running. Su is a great teacher, very encouraging and took things nice and steadily so that there was no feeling of being rushed. Lots of great tips and hints to help and I ended the afternoon amazed that I had produced a piece of art I was really proud of. The kit was good value and produced a great experience. Dropping hints to get another kit for Christmas......or I might treat myself before then!read more

Su has the most amazing talent of being able to capture the unique expressions and personalities of animals. I was... lucky enough to win a pet portrait in one of Su's competitions which I collected today. Fifi was one of our much loved guinea pigs, and the portrait that Su has painted is just beautiful. My daughter is over the moon at seeing Fifi brought to life in the painting. Thank you so much Su! Xread more
