About the tutor

Tom Benjamin is a renowned, local oil painter who exhibits locally and nationally. He trained in Brighton and Norwich and usually transports his artist materials by bike. He regularly runs workshops for all abilities and residencies overseas.

‘The artist’s job is to make poetry out of the ordinary. Sometimes I am struck by something I get an emotional response from…it’s a continuous process of reproducing, improvising and altering my response. I am always surprised by what comes out.’
