I met David through a friend of mine.I was looking for someone to design the cover of my music album. From the beginning I saw David's passion and knowledge and after our first collaboration I asked David if he could teach me the basics of his art. His way of teaching is so fun that really soon I started designing my own ideas for my next albums. Actually David showed me the way to do it my self!
Thanks man! Looking forward for our next lesson!

I met David by chance in one of his trips in Greece!
It's been 2 years already that I have been taking drawing classes!
David is a charismatic, dedicated and inspirational teacher with a vast artistic talent!!
I am not charismatic at all, but he actually managed to bring out possibilities in me that I could never even imagine!
His approach is very attentive and encouraging, introducing various techniques and explaining them step by step. David will go to all lenghts to ensure you achieve the best, pushing you forward in a way that is really motivating, but never overwhelming!
Looking forward to my next class!!!!

David has been our daughter's drawing teacher for 10 months now. He came highly recommended and we were not disappointed.

David is brilliant. He has a very calming presence and is very good at engaging with children. We were pleasantly surprised at how David manages to contain our daughter's excited enthusiasm (as he politely put it...) and to keep her focused for 1 hour. The classes themselves are excellent: children learn to carefully observe, to recognise shapes and patterns, and to describe them. This enables children to draw in a way that otherwise would not be possible, and, has allowed David to successfully and effectively run Zoom classes during lockdown.

In short, I would warmly recommend David to any parent!

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

I have been working with David for over 6 months with the goal of improving my illustration skills. It's fair to say that I have improved dramatically in this time and most of that is down to his excellent teaching and mentorship. He has been able to adapt his lessons to suit my goals and interests. He has devised tailored exercises to help me progress in the specific areas I need to. David is both affable and professional and has a wealth of experience and knowledge of the many facets of art training. I intend to continue to work with David as I grow as an artist.

Private tuition may be expensive but I consider it to be more than worth the cost no matter what you are trying to learn. There's only so much you can gain by watching online videos. To improve it is essential to get real feedback and help from someone with more experience who really cares about helping you. For drawing and painting lessons David is your man!

David has provided a perfectly tailored and intuitive experience! In understanding the initial level I was at with my drawing, he was able to direct my development based on my interest in science fiction and character design.

Valia

David is a dedicated art tutor, with a very creative approach. Calm, resourceful and fun as a person, he made every lesson interesting and challenging, which is a very important factor for me. He also is very happy to adjust his lesson plans according to my questions and difficulties, so I always feel that I get a completely tailor made lesson! I couldn't recommend more David as an art tutor!
