Perfect! Erika is a great artist and teacher. She has a long experience and many Art skills.
For 2 months, she helps me to create my portfolio. She’s very kind and attentive.
I can feel that I'm making progress. I strongly recommend her :)
She is very talented and hardworking
She completed an oil painting , a woman's portrait , very well executed.
I did trials with another teachers and Erika is simply the best!!!!
Easygoing! Professional! Great sense of humour! What else would you need ?
We draw a beautiful painting for my husband’s 50th BD in different techniques. Thinking to come back and create another masterpiece ..
She is a really nice teacher. She gave me confidence for drawing and always been patient with me. When we working together, I always feel that time passes quickly. I am looking forward to the next course.
Erika, is a great teacher. She is very kind and patient and I have learnt a lot. My drawing and knowledge of art has tremendously improved and would recommend her to anyone who want to learn or improve their skills and knowledge of art.
I’ve known Erika for 2 years now. She is a professional artist who is trustworthy and reliable and able to teach art to a very high standard. She has been giving art lessons to my primary school aged daughter for the last few months. My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed each lesson and learnt amazing skills that have improved her drawing significantly in a short period of time.
The art classes I have had so far have been very good as I have learnt how to blend and use colours effectively in a short space of time. She is very calm and very patient with all the questions I have had. I would recommend her to anyone that is a beginner or wants to improve their painting and drawing skills
