New Zealand born artist and tutor, Maxine Thompson has been recognised for her talent at depicting people and animals in life like pictures.
Named as master pastellist by the Pastel Society of Australia, Maxine is called upon to give advice and critiques at its meetings.

Maxine drew her first commissioned portraits as a teenager but almost abandoned a career as an artist. She began studying for a law degree and took up legal work in England.
She kept returning to her first love, however and over the years was often commissioned for portraits. In 1990 Maxine took up life as a full time artist. Maxine has exhibited in many art shows and won many prizes and awards.

What to expect from the workshop:

  • to learn to draw accurately and shade realistically

  • learn pencil drawing techniques or pastel methods for alive looking art works

  • any willing student can learn to draw from scratch.

  • each exercise is demonstrated and explained so beginners can cope and experienced artists will be challenged to find the accuracy necessary to portray a realistic artwork.
