Hi Gabby, I just wanted to say a big thank you for today’s workshop. Having followed your work for quite some time I was initially very impressed and after all this time after seeing the work you showed today I was in awe of your talent. Every artist has their own processes and methods and their own unique way of portraying their subject matter and I was very curious to know your methods. I have always found you to be a great mentor, always encouraging and supportive.

And I also need to mention you are so generous in giving advice and tips to individual artists no matter what their level, which in my case I found every time I have taken note of your suggestions my work improves. No matter what level an artist is at I find there is always something that can be learnt. Thank you. Warm regards, Helen.
