Meet The Tutor

Hi. I’m Michelle Gibbs, and I’m thrilled to welcome you to this journey of creativity and expression through paint. With over 20 years of painting experience and more than a decade dedicated to teaching, my passion for art has been a long-standing affair that grows stronger with each brushstroke.

From the moment I picked up a paintbrush, I knew that art was more than just a hobby for me; it was a calling. Over the years, I’ve explored various mediums and techniques, but my heart always finds its way back to the vibrant and versatile world of acrylics. This medium, with its rich pigments and forgiving nature, has allowed me to express my visions in ways I never thought possible.

Teaching has been a rewarding extension of my artistic journey. Witnessing the transformation of my students, from hesitant beginners to confident artists, has been one of the most fulfilling aspects of my career. I believe that everyone has a unique artistic voice waiting to be discovered, and it’s my mission to guide you in finding yours.


I’ve been teaching since 2014. I’m so confident that you will love the course that if after 14 days you don’t feel you’ve learnt something new I will refund 100% of your money back.

I use oil paint can I apply your lessons to this medium?
