« Olivia is a very thoughtful and creative person. She is conscientious, kind and hard-working. I have always found her advice and input extremely supportive: she manages to balance her insight and skills, to help develop my own knowledge and ideas, to give me the confidence to explore and develop further, in a very open and creative way. I always come away from our discussions with new insights and motivation. I wholeheartedly recommend her as a tutor. »

The goal: to provide you with a new tool for expressing your you-ness!

Methodology

The school of art I live within is informal, a friendly, no-need-to-get-up kind of place.

The techniques I teach are a means to make you happier with your drawings. Our goal: to give you the ability to sneak into the heart of your subject by going direct.

Together we will work on how to give your drawings character, improve your visual memory, and work from mistakes.

You’ll learn how to develop visual motifs such as texture, shape, composition and character, and develop your own drawing practice.

Before the session I can look into your most recent work which gives me a bigger picture of your creative voice. I believe that developing your expression is a matter of time, so I am a very encouraging tutor. I am trained both in classical (academic) drawing and painting approaches, as well as more liberal and contemporary fine art education.

For examples of my work, please see my website: (concealed information)

Experience

I have been a professional artist for the last four years, showing work in London, Vienna, Barcelona and Wellington. I studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins - which is continuously ranked among the best ten art schools in the world - and received 1st class honours. I am passionate about teaching art in ways that make the subject and its history come to life for my students.

I have three years of teaching experience with adults and children. I am familiar with the art curriculum and have personal experience of portfolio preparation courses. I am competent and skilled in research and project development. I have been commended for my remarkable ability to introduce students to different fields of art and design within one session, and for giving students the the confidence they need to push their practice into a different realm.

I am DBS certified.

Olivia is a very thoughtful and creative person. She is conscientious, kind and hard-working. I have always found her advice and input extremely supportive: she manages to balance her insight and skills, to help develop my own knowledge and ideas, to give me the confidence to explore and develop further, in a very open and creative way.

Olivia brought many ideas to the table in a genuine and fun way. She would always go that extra mile to inspire and support our son. Would thoroughly recommend her !

L
Laura

It's been a true delight having Olivia as my tutor for the last few months. Her passion and experience in drawing is valuable in helping me find my own style and explore new possibilities, while at the same time sticking to technique and covering all the basics of drawing. I always look forward our next class and I couldn't recommending her more for anyone who is interested in exploring this world.
