Meet your Art Coach: Gabrielle Vickery
Gabrielle Vickery is the founder of The Arthouse Oasis. She has always been artistic, enjoying her school years focusing on art lessons. Gabrielle went onto College and then University, where she achieved a BA (Hons) in Audio Visual design. Her speciality was animation, but after graduating she gravitated towards design and art.
She has been a graphic designer and illustrator ever since, and for the last 25 years has built up her Graphic Design business with her business partner.
Then two things happened to change her direction in life. The first was that she was diagnosed with breast cancer during a routine mammogram. The second was that her daughter was being bullied at school. These two hugely stressful experiences caused a massive shift in Gabrielle’s perspective on life.
Whilst recovering from major surgery and trying to find a new school for her daughter she became more and more drawn to art as a way to increase her wellbeing. She soon came to realise that she could share the many benefits of art with others. And there the lightbulb flashed and her decision to open up an art studio was formed. The next day she created her brand and The Arthouse Oasis was born.

Video Course Frequently Asked Questions
Here are a few answers to our most common questions.
Yes of course, we love it when groups get involved :-). If you have purchased a course and you are all in the same household then you can all create art together, just play the videos at the same time as each other.
We do request that if you are doing the courses from separate locations then you pay separately.
Costs vary depending on which course you choose. Currently prices are as follows:
Plain Pencil Drawings £15
Coloured Pencil Drawings £20
Watercolour Paintings £30
We would love you to try our video courses for yourself, so our ‘Draw a Rose using Pencils Course’ is completely free. Try it for yourself here.
Absolutely! We are very careful to plan each course for the absolute beginner. We use the most basic of materials and break each step down into it’s simplest form. You can pause each video if the instructions seem too fast so you should have no problem following along. You can even slow it down or speed it up using Youtube’s own settings.
Our studio is in Great Hallingbury about ten minutes from Bishop’s Stortford in Hertfordshire.
