RCA Graduate tutoring in Art & DesignFrom younger ages to portfolio support for art school.
I am an RCA MA Painting graduate, and I have a BA(Hons) degree in Fine Art from Westminster University, and a Foundation diploma in Art & Design from the University for the Creative Arts. I am a practicing artist based in London, specializing in painting, and I have been showing my work nationally and internationally. My recent solo show was at Class Reiss London, and I also had a solo presentation at Art Athina. My fascination with tutoring derives from my sensitivity around learning disabilities, something which is a recurring theme in my practice as I grew up as a dyslexic learner, as well as my educational experience of being part of leading academic UK institutions. Through my work as an art tutor I strive to inspire and support my students, offering insight to my experience as a RCA alumnus and to the professional life of an artist. I teach students of all ages, as I strongly believe that involvement with the arts is always eye opening and revealing, especially when this leads to a career in the arts through higher education. I can offer art lessons for younger children, involving introduction to creative techniques and idea development, mentoring and support with portfolio preparation to apply for art schools internationally  as well as tutoring on contextualizing your work through constructive and generative feedback.

Autodesk 3DSMax, logiciel de création tridimensionnelle
3DSMax est l'outil le plus employé dans l''industrie du jeu et de la réalité virtuelle. Il sert à concevoir des images fixes ou animées en mettant en scène des objets 3D dans des univers tridimensionnels. Ceux-ci peuvent aussi être exportés pour des logiciels de réalité virtuelle comme Unity ou Unreal. De fait, tout peut être réalisé graphiquement avec un tel logiciel : Du simple objet manufacturé, en passant par le design, l'architecture, l'urbanisme, jusqu'à la création de personnages de dessin animés ou hyper-réalistes immergés dans des mondes imaginaires ou existants, du compositing vidéo jusqu'à la réalité mixte. C'est donc un outil complet qui comblera l'artiste comme l'amateur de technologie. Aussi de manière évolutive, vous apprendrez à maitriser son interface et produire de manière progressive des objets et des scènes 3D de plus en plus complexes et de plus en plus réalistes.

MENTORING IN ARTS : Discover how to say something through your artistic work.
I am a visual artist born in Barcelona, settled in Belgium since 2017. As an artist I have accumulated experience for the last 25 years. I am graduated with an Academic Bachelor in Fine Arts in the University of Barcelona and graduated as a Master in Visual Arts at Sint Lucas School of Arts in Antwerpen. I am specialised in painting, drawing, experimental films, installations, language, sound and curating. In other words, I am a multidisciplinary artist. I understand the artistic practice as a way to understand ourselves and the situations which surrounds us. In my classes I don't teach how to do Art, but as how to say something through your artistic work. With me you can work independently, with a coach who will challenge you with some assignments and giving feedback to your personal concerns. In addition, you will learn how to work with several mediums, preparing your own material: paintings, canvases, and so on. You will not only receive individual coaching but as encourage you to look other artists or take into account other references connected with your concerns. Finding, discussing and retaking solutions together are the core of my classes.
