Matthew is a very kind and supportive tutor with loads of experience and expertise that he generously passes on to his students.
I highly recommend his forthcoming classes.

Matt is like your encouraging mum, a kinder, more constructive version of your own inner critic, and your hilarious pal- all rolled into one amazing being that I for one feel flippin lucky to be tutored by. Why struggle on alone when you could have all that?

I have had the total pleasure of taking classes and being mentored by Matt and it absolutely changed the way I work. I think one of his best skills is being able to work across a wide variety of artists’ styles while encouraging you to develop your individuality and avoid cloning his own style on to others. He can approach any painting and know exactly how to help the artist make it work by advising on colour, texture, composition and more. A knowledgeable, kind and funny tutor who I would highly recommend.
