De Gillett is Arts Tree's foundation tutor, in acrylics, inks and oils. De is a practicing professional artist and fine arts tutor with 20 years’ experience in teaching painting and drawing across a wide range of media. De holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Queensland College of Art (2012).
Now that she has graduated as an Honours College Scholar De is concentrating on bringing the joy of making art to the wider world as a tutor for Arts Tree. De’s lessons are exciting, fun, and are guaranteed to push you out of bad habits and onwards into artistic excellence. De works in a wide range of styles from the photo-realistic to the wild and impetuous and everywhere in between — portraiture, flight, figures, landscape and more. Her wilder work has been described as ‘recklessly sumptuous’ and she specialises in busting students out of their tight and over controlled beginnings to create beautiful, painterly, exciting works without ever ignoring the importance of learning and practicing good drawing technique.

Arts Tree painting classes are structured in blocks of 4 x 2 hour, or 4 x 2.5 hour classes. Each block is called a program, and one program gives you the right to come along at the same time each week for 4 weeks in a row. If you like what you find, then as an existing client you have first option of purchasing the next 4 weeks of classes at the same time and place. Our students are very varied- we have some who find that they love our classes so much they just keep on coming week after week, and some who can only find the time in their busy lives for just one four week block, and everything in between! We maintain a waiting list for places in the class, so if as an ongoing student you decide to give it a miss for now or for forever, your place goes to the next student artist waiting on the list.
Make-up classes- If you are unable to come for one of your classes, please let us know. We are able to offer you a complimentary “Make-up” class only once in a 4 week program. Any other missed classes within that 4 weeks will be debited against your booked dates as though you had attended. Other people may be waiting for a place in that class, and we must be fair to everyone!
