Self in snow

Hello and welcome to my website! I am Martina Weatherley. I live in Harwich, on the north east coast of Essex with my husband Frank, who is a professional saxophonist and music tutor at The Brentwood School. We have three grown up children. I paint and I teach drawing and painting to adults in Harwich, Manningtree, Colchester, Clacton, Lawford and Frinton, via Tendring Adult Community College courses, private classes and workshops.

I did my Foundation year at St Martin's School of Art, gained a first class honours degree in Fine Art from Falmouth School of Art in Cornwall in 1982 and my PGCE in 2007.  I have fourteen year's experience of teaching adults.  I also home-educated my children. I have additional qualifications in teaching adults, group facilitation and counselling.

My drawings, paintings and photographs reflect my interest in states of mind and my interest in light. 

I belong to the artist's co-operative 2D3D, Bodgener's artist's co-operative in Harwich and Colchester Art Society.
