About me

I am a professional artist bringing courses, workshops and demonstrations to art groups and individuals throughout the UK and abroad.

How I use your information

The information I hold about my customers are only the details you provide, either by booking a course or joining my mailing list. This information is solely for the purposes of contacting you, either in relation to a course booking or for introducing you to my courses, workshops and exhibitions.


If you book a course you are asked to provide your name, address, telephone number and email address. This is so that I have a few ways of contacting you for processing the booking and also in case I need to cancel or make changes to a course. Your details will be kept in a password protected PC for the duration of the course year. At the end of the course year, your details are deleted. The data is not shared, analysed or sold to any third parties and its sole purpose is for contacting you about the course only.

Mailing list

I use the Mailchimp platform to bring you information regarding my courses, workshops and exhibitions. The only information I require are your name and email address. I only send out occasional mailings. You are free to change your details or unsubscribe at any time, either from my signup page on my website or using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of each email.

I never share your details with anyone else. I don't track or analyse data usage. All payments made through PayPal are secure and I do not see, record or store any of your payment information.

Demonstration enquiries

If you enquire about a demonstration or workshop for an art group you will be providing me with your name, telephone number and email address so that we can make contact about the booking. Your details are kept as a point of contact only for the booking and are not held on any database unless you specifically request it, such as ‘add me to your mailing list’.


Any invoice addressed to you, will include your name and address. No sensitive data such as credit card details are handled or stored by me. Your invoice forms part of my accounting records, which have to be kept for seven years for the purposes of HM Revenue and Tax. The invoices are shared each tax year with Armitages LTD, chartered accountants for the purposes of tax calculation, after which Armitages LTD have no further use for them.

How your invoice records are kept.

Up until 1st April 2019, paper copies of invoice records are kept in a locked cabinet and electronic details of the same are kept in a password protected file. Only I have access to those records. From 1st April 2019 onwards, details are stored in a password protected electronic invoicing system with no paper copies created. Details of accounts beyond seven years of age are destroyed.
