About the instructor

Celine Gorham is a Fredericton-based artist and art teacher. Deeply inspired by the natural world, her paintings in watercolour, ink, and acrylic depict dreamy botanical studies and little treasures from the forests of her home province. She divides her time between her personal art practice, teaching art classes, and knitting or cycling (but never both at the same time).
