With Beatrice I am an artist with an MA from the Royal College of Art (Distinction) and a BA from the Slade School of Art (Distinction) and a Foundation Diploma from Chelsea School of Fine Art. I've been living in London for the past 7 years. Having gone through the best possible art education, I know exactly what the top art institutions look for in their students. I can provide excellent tutoring for portfolio preparation as well as interview practice, take students on visits to the institutions of their choice as well as galleries in London, to prepare them for thinking critically about art making. I believe in pushing my students to be hard working and dedicated, while having the courage to experiment, find their artistic language and what makes them passionate. I am passionate about nurturing a solid enthusiasm for art. My art practice is interdisciplinary, and I will encourage them to try everything, from painting and drawing to sculpture, photography and more.
With Dawn Beedell I have enjoyed a successful career as a Teacher for nearly two decades. My passion is supporting and enabling people to learn, succeed and gain confidence.
I am a great believer in positive thinking and of using art as a way to relax and unwind. I have developed into a professional artist with a unique style, gaining the confidence to exhibit and having work published.
In my teaching I aim to support you in living a creative life with a relaxing and inspirational approach in which you can explore, connect with and develop your artistic skills.
That support could be: Acquiring new skills and/or developing skills in specific art forms or mediums; Raising confidence and self esteem through insight and kindness to oneself, which can overflow into other areas of your life; Providing time and space to relax and de-stress and simply enjoy art; Achieving your own personal goals.
With Emily S I've been working professionally as an artist since 2009, making graphics and illustrations for clients and having worked for Disney Research for just over a year. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Bachelor's in Fine Arts in 2012. I'm currently a freelance artist, but I'd also love to contribute to the art education community by inspiring and instructing anyone who wants to learn. I specialize in drawing/illustration, digital painting, and 2D animation, mostly in the context of video games (with 2D graphics). I can also give advice in the designing of video games as well as marketing them. My hope and mission is to successfully distribute my knowledge, skills and experience to anyone who wants to acquire them. Thank you for your interest!
