Learn to paint with oils Reduce stress, build confidence & feel fulfilled!

Most people need a way to destress. I offer gentle painting coaching, that will help you relax, and produce work you never thought was possible!

"Hey there, I'm Heather Bradbury,

No matter what level of experience you have had, or your age. I will help you use painting to enjoy life more, find your creative voice, and paint a professional looking artwork, that will blow you away!

With a life time of creating, and many years teaching hundreds of students both in class and online... I will share with you all the things I have learnt along the way!"

Welcome to my painting studio! I am a mum of four amazing boys, passionate about helping people find their creative voice and currently teach painting and other creative courses online! 

Having grown up in rural Victoria and then lived in Tasmania for almost 20 years, nature and community has been a big part of my world. When I burnt out many years ago, I was forced to find something to help me find a place of comfort and direction. I fell in love with painting nature in a photo realistic way during this time, then went on to teach others. 

Space jump 10 years or so I now have over 100 students, with many who have said painting has also changed their lives, as it did mine!

I have many stories to share and look forward to having in one of my classes and having a yarn with you about how creativity and especially painting can help you too!
