A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the painter or photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer.

I will cover the basics of proportions, tone lighting etc.

About Me

I am a practicing artist and workshop facilitator seeking employment in the Bristol area. Both my practice and teaching are centered around connecting and invigorating people through art. My aim as a facilitator is to tailor the learning experience around the individual’s needs and interests. The British arts education system is outdated, underfunded and does not reflect the current art scene. I have seen first-hand that students who have an awareness of contemporary art are very attractive candidates for higher education establishments. I have an excellent track record for facilitating successful applicants in their onward careers. My skill as a teacher is to ignite confidence and passion in making art that celebrates personality, skill, originality and fresh contemporary practices.
I have recently left my position as Head of Art at the prestigious independent school Barrow Hills in Surrey. Alongside this role, I was a Teacher of Art for three years at King Edward’s School Witley. I gained a PGCE whilst teaching, which I passed at Distinction level. In these roles I was able to modernise and reshape the curriculum. Digital arts, installation workshops and gestural drawing classes are some examples of this. In my personal practice I have been working on a recent collaborative performance with artist and painter, Shivani Khoshia due to debut in UK galleries in 2020. My work has exhibited in Vancouver, BC and across the UK.

Art is a broad subject by nature. I begin my lessons with a conversation about what you as a pupil would like to learn and gain form our lessons. We can then draw up a plan and work from there. Art involves a diverse range of activities in creating visual, auditory or performing artifacts (artworks), expressing the author's imaginative, conceptual ideas, or technical skill, intended to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. Other activities related to the production of works of art include the criticism of art, and the study of the history of art. Please send me a personal message to discuss what else you could learn in my lessons.
HELPS WITH CREATIVITY The more you fill the pages of your sketchbook and flex your creativity muscles, the easier your ideas and imagination will flow. Sketchbooks are great because you're not confined to just drawing. You can use it as a place to explore different mediums, study different techniques, create color palettes, design patterns, and keep a collection of visuals that inspire you. Using a variety of mediums in a sketchbook also helps grow creativity. Even though I work on a computer all day, I still very much enjoy taking a step back from that to draw or paint, even if it's just a quick doodle. You may find that what you use as inspiration for your sketchbook and the mediums you use cross over into other work. For example, I love hand-lettering, and there are times that skill comes in handy for an editorial feature. What you explore in your sketchbook can open up new doors; it can help push you outside of the norm, where you explore new ideas and maybe even help you define your personal style. KEEPS YOUR SKILLS SHARP Keeping up a sketchbook is a great way to keep my drawing skills sharp. Maintaining that skill is important since sketching out ideas is a major part of my design process. When I get stuck on something, a pencil and a sheet of paper are the first things I reach for because it helps me unload a lot of what’s inside my brain and turn it into visuals. I can then see what ideas are working and what ideas aren't. Sketching is an important aspect of being a graphic designer, and I can see it being a very useful skill in other creative fields as well. By being a creative who practices and keeps your drawing skills sharp, you can quickly and easily sketch ideas that pop into your head and then save that sketch to refer back to when you need it. It’s also comes in handy when you’re trying to communicate ideas to others. Oftentimes I’ll be discussing artwork for an upcoming magazine issue with an editor and sketching layouts frequently comes into play. The ability to sketch has continually proven to be an important and versatile tool for me.
Drawing remains a central and pivotal activity to the work of many artists and designers – a touchstone and tool of creative exploration that informs visual discovery. It fundamentally enables the visualisation and development of perceptions and ideas. With a history as long and intensive as the history of our culture, the act of drawing remains a fundamental means to translate, document, record and analyse the worlds we inhabit. The role of drawing in education remains critical, and not just to the creative disciplines in art and design for which it is foundational. As a primary visual language, essential for communication and expression, drawing is as important as the development of written and verbal skills. The need to understand the world through visual means would seem more acute than ever; images transcend the barriers of language, and enhance communications in an increasingly globalised world.

Graduated from a digital arts school, I give digital drawing lessons
I have a bachelor's degree in digital arts, obtained at Saint Luc in 2016. During my studies I did live modeling, had courses in color, 2D animation, perspectives and character design. I mainly draw with a graphics tablet. I explore different styles but particularly focus on character drawing. It is this flexibility that I wish to transmit during my lessons. Learn to look at an image, understand the way the artist composes it, then learn to reproduce a style. Not copying, but really understanding and being able to reuse this style for original creations.
