Yami is an accomplished oil painter, artist mentor and workshop facilitator offering private art tutoring from her Melbourne studio. She has developed her own style based on traditional oil painting methods and the principles of mischtechnik. Yami has studied a Bachelor of Fine Art and learnt directly from contemporary masters of their craft.  There is so much to be gained in the direct transmission from artist to artist in how we can share, grow, encourage, teach and inspire eachother.

Mentor sessions may be booked for 1, 2 or 4 hours in duration and cater to individual needs and goals.

Deep guided meditation sessions are a wonderful way to both gain insight into the artwork and  for self revelation. These are held with the intention to enter more deeply into your artwork via an immersive experience for the purposes of artwork development where the benefits are of both personal and artistic insight.This can be particularly useful to re-enter an artwork or seek new inspiration to work from.

Artwork creation: step by step from beginning to completion of a finished artwork over a series of sessions.

"Trouble shoot' an artwork or get assistance with a particular area or skill

Sessions are generally held in her studio in Glen Waverley, Victoria. If you have an established studio it is also possible to arrange a session there however there will be a small additional fee to cover travel expenses.

Payment via bank transfer or cash. 50% deposit required for online bookings.
