ROS PSAKIS - Award Winning Artist and Tutor
Home
Ros Psakis
 
FIVE TIME WINNER OF THE 'ART OF SYDNEY AWARD'
 
Ros has paintings hanging in collections both here in Australia
and overseas.
 
She is a popular demonstrator and workshop tutor with her easy to understand
method of teaching. Early training was with Gloria Ransom and Allan Fizzell.
Her continuing lessons come from Nature herself. Learning to paint is an ongoing
