British abstract artist lived in Los Angeles, exhibits globally, based in London

Methodology

My approach is open, polite, clear, fun, attentive and assertive.
The levels of teaching have varied from one on one tuition for GCSE portfolios to big time 'creative' corporations in Hollywood. I encourage all students to use the side of the brain that is less used. I include philosophical approaches to my teaching. I am open to teaching people from all walks of life, background and confidence levels. The first thing I say in class is that everyone can draw and I show them how. Some of these methods include: Blind Contour, Collage, Negative Space Appreciation, Painting By Numbers, Drawing With The Other Hand, Drawing Your Neighbour, Decoupage, Rubbing, Making Portraits With Found Materials etc

Experience

From art therapy to basic drawing. As a creative with dyslexia I am able to understand student's needs, their different levels and paces of learning. My students range from young children to music executives at Warner Brother Group. They feel confident with their new skill sets, are happy to work by themselves and interact with the class.
