About Me

I am an Artist and Designer working across textiles, fashion and illustration. I have a Masters Degree in Fashion Knitwear from the Royal College of Art and am currently developing some new materials in the field of fibre science!

I believe that building a strong skill base enables students to harness their imagination and turn ideas into real, tangible pieces. I am consistently surprised by the young people I work with, and have discovered a real passion for sharing my skills as an art-maker throughout my teaching career so far. I love to work with colour and line and encourage students to take a curious, experimental approach to their learning. My priority is for students to become independent and build confidence with the skills we explore, becoming able to create things they are truly proud of.

I have taught students aged 6 to 60 over the last 4 years and enjoy sharing my skills with students of all levels. My specialisms are in Life Drawing, Illustration, Textiles Skills and Fashion Design, although my interests spread far and wide.

Education

Masters Degree in Fashion from the Royal College of Art in London, due to complete 2020

Bachelors First Class Honours Degree from Manchester Metropolitan University 2014

Experience / Qualifications

Currently an Artist Educator with Bow Arts in East London - available for workshops.

Working with EFL students and a broad range of abilities, I have become comfortable adapting my teaching methods in response to individual needs and group dynamics.

This method links philosophical, psychological, spiritual, and scientific approaches to the movement. (You can check the available Dance & Healing (TE) class on my page for further information.) I have had professional experiences in several countries in Europe (France, Iceland, Sweden, Germany, Greece), and in Asia (Malaysia, Bali). - For who? : For anyone who enjoys movement and dance, and desires a better connection and understanding with their moving bodies. / ​One-to-one or group sessions. - ​Where? : Online via SKYPE or at the student's location.

MENTORING IN ARTS : Discover how to say something through your artistic work.
I am a visual artist born in Barcelona, settled in Belgium since 2017. As an artist I have accumulated experience for the last 25 years. I am graduated with an Academic Bachelor in Fine Arts in the University of Barcelona and graduated as a Master in Visual Arts at Sint Lucas School of Arts in Antwerpen. I am specialised in painting, drawing, experimental films, installations, language, sound and curating. In other words, I am a multidisciplinary artist. I understand the artistic practice as a way to understand ourselves and the situations which surrounds us. In my classes I don't teach how to do Art, but as how to say something through your artistic work. With me you can work independently, with a coach who will challenge you with some assignments and giving feedback to your personal concerns. In addition, you will learn how to work with several mediums, preparing your own material: paintings, canvases, and so on. You will not only receive individual coaching but as encourage you to look other artists or take into account other references connected with your concerns. Finding, discussing and retaking solutions together are the core of my classes.

History of art history, art valuation and art market. For beginners, bachelors and masters
Art history is a hobby for some people, for others it is a working tool to analyse the social and cultural context. It helps you to orientate yourself in the world of rapid change and globalisation. The understanding of cultural discourse is a rich and unique background which may impress your interlocutor and gain you points in the eyes of your friends and colleagues. One of the main goals I try to achieve as a tutor is to encourage my students to explore the art world around them. In my lessons, I create a friendly environment to teach how to analyse paintings having factual information, and how to look at the art from the big scale perspective. The lessons are specifically tailored to my student's interests, weaknesses and concerns and from this nurture a solid learning style that they will be able to take with them to further education. I have a methodical approach to learning where every lesson is planned, and materials are distributed afterwards to the student. I am always ready to adapt the lessons quickly to the level of the student’s preparation and knowledge, receiving feedback from parents, students or teachers.

Fine arts and mixed media - Drawing, paiting, sculpture, printmaking, and more.
Are you a new aspiring artist trying your hand at creating artwork for the first time? Or do you want to improve your skills with valuable advice on your practice perhaps in preparation for a course of study or to perfect your technique? Contemporary art offers a wide range of possibilities and mediums. Through over eleven years of studying and practicing Fine Arts, I have acquired a deep love and appreciation for traditional art techniques such as traditional technical painting and drawing, and mixed media sculpting but also enjoyed experimenting with uncountable numbers of other unconventional media integrating them with contemporary languages. My course will help you improve your skills or learn from scratch how to get drawings, sculptures and paintings according to your goals.

Jeanne
Student in art offers courses around the arts, for young and old!
My artistic practice revolves around sound, image and photography. I am familiar with artistic activities that are suitable for young and old. I did babysitting for almost six years during which time I made films, albums and plays with the children I looked after. I am studying my national art diploma (DNA) at the Beaux-Arts in Marseille, which allows me to have access to all kinds of materials and spaces to create and nourish myself. My lessons would really revolve around your desire, that of your child. Searching together for what we might like, transmitting the history of art, supporting the school course around this theme. I am curious, patient, handy and inventive!

Maria
Individual artistic lessons – professional, individual
Finding your own artistic expression or access is an experimental adventure, because everyone brings different requirements and talents. These first need to be thoroughly examined and then developed in a targeted manner – but also with great sensitivity. It doesn't matter whether you want to learn a certain technique or theoretically underpin and classify your previous work, whether you are primarily interested in self-knowledge and the discovery of your creative potential, or whether you want to gain more access to and fundamental knowledge of contemporary art - whatever is always your concern, I am happy to support you. As a busy academic artist who has been working professionally for a good twenty years, I can convey numerous techniques in the areas of painting, graphics, sculpture and performance. In an initial discussion, we analyze the personal reasons for your artistic interest and any artistic goals. Accordingly, I develop an individual curriculum that suggests both practical and content (eg literature tips) - a range of courses from which you alone can choose, because only you can ultimately know where the journey should go. Arrange an initial consultation with me in my studio in the 6th district in Vienna or via Skype. I look forward to meeting you!

Patricia
CREATIVE ENERGETIC AND MINDFUL DANCE FOR SELF DISCOVERY-
I am a professional dancer and teacher. My work ethics are very aligned with buddhism and want to help people to feel good in their own bodies, releasing trauma, blockages and tensions. This is an opportunity to also have a good time and be in touch with your emotions through movement. I use the body to understand ourselves and our deepest thought process by truly connecting with the present moment. I use meditation and other techniques to help us drop the voices in our heads and create a free channel of connection with higher self. My intention is to help the body be the vessel it is and gain trust and confidence in who we are.
