About the Tutor:

'I am a resin artist and tutor based in the Sutherland Shire! I began experimenting with resin whilst on break from university and instantly loved the ability to create unique and colourful homewares. The best part about offering this course is the ability to help others express their individuality through art and see many proud faces at the end. In 2020 I established a small business ‘Your Arts Desire’ and now sell resin art to the public’.
