Special effects artist and sculptor offering sculpture and character design lessons in Birmingham.

Methodology

Looking to create your own character or to bring your own design to life ? To study the human figure, or any fantasy characters through 3 dimensional art ?
In these lessons I aim to help you bring any idea to life by learning to sculpt in Polymer or oil clay.

I am a special effects artist with 7+ year experience, and enjoy to teach both special effects and sculpture in a non formal, yet dynamic and professional way.
I base my lessons on my experience working in the film and entertainment industry as well as, as a creator of art pieces.

I like to start with an introduction to the subject, and always use a lot of visual examples. When teaching sculpting I will always work alongside you. We will go step by step, together, at your own pace.
I am always happy to give a set subject or to create content from the student's idea.

Background

I am a Special effects artist with 7+ years of experience in the film, theater and entertainment industry.
I have been giving special effects lessons for the past 3 years, from Year 3 to University BA.
While most of my lessons were focused on Special effects I'd like to bring the sculpture aspect of my work forward and offer creature design and sculpture courses. From finding references to sculpting a clay maquette.
