Thomas Wood  For many years, I have had an interest in plants and gardens. I previously worked as a horticulturalist, nurseryman and arranged / designed with flowers. My inspiration and influence is from the natural environment with its endless possibilities of shapes and patterns found in nature.

Social Media

Only 2 spots left! (Private tuitions also available)

Telling your story. This is your chance to visually showcase you, your work and your life. For some artists, Instagram is enough; & for others, a mix of Instagram, Facebook & a website is needed.

After the workshop you will learn the difference between a personal account and a professional account. You will gain a better understanding of the basics of Instagram, layouts, hashtags and consistent branding of you and your artwork. Your social media will assist you to provide your audience, arts organisations, and industries with a visual story of you as an artist. Read more.
