Amanda Waite

We are very privileged to have Amanda as our tutor. Her passion for art is infectious and her commitment to teaching it tireless. She recognises the artist in each student and skilfully draws them out to identify their own style and expression. 


The absolute beginner need have no fear of whether they can't draw or paint because she takes them step by step down a road of discovering just what they can do!

Besides her tutoring skills, Amanda has a compassionate, warm nature which bring an element of peace to our classes.


Raised in Scotland, Amanda now lives in Wimborne with her husband and two beautiful daughters. She has a BA Hons in Graphic Design, specialising in illustration. When she has time to herself, Amanda loves to wind surf, cycle and keep fit, as well as creating her own works of art.
