Artist and illustrator offers afternoon illustration, painting and drawing lessons in Croydon

Methodology

I like the Right brain teaching method, which shows how to see before teaching how to draw: sometimes we are used to think that we should draw a triangle for a nose or that the sky is blue, but when we check reality is different from what we thought!

Experience

I'm an Italian teacher, but I've always studied and made art since I was a child. I paint on almost every surface, included walls and fabrics; I've decorated shoes and handmade pendants; I've made murals and big oil canvases; now I'm focusing on children books digital illustration. I've held many art workshops teaching children and adults. You can check my website to see what I do: (concealed information)
