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.

I work annually with international students as a Summer School Art Coordinator, devising and delivering an arts programme for students age 6-16 with varying levels of English. 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.

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.

Arts and Crafts for Mental Wellbeing - Children Age 7-12
In this ongoing Art & Wellbeing For Kids course, students will engage in exercises in drawing, painting, collage, and more. These art projects will develop their artistic abilities, while helping them develop tools to maintain mental wellbeing. Your student will create art that they're proud of, and along the way learn tools to express their emotions, reflect on their feelings, and build their confidence. All abilities and skills are welcome! This class should leave your student feeling accomplished and relaxed each week. The art projects I lead are specifically designed to develop self esteem, self reflection, a diverse emotions vocabulary, and resilience. My teaching methodology is a unique blend of teaching technical art skills with a focus on reflective processes. The creative process helps children express themselves in a non-verbal medium that reflects their emotional state. Engagement with the arts has also been proven to increase confidence and self esteem. I cultivate a safe and supportive learning environment in which students feel comfortable asking questions and sharing with the group. In each live class meeting, I will go step-by-step through the art project. Students will have the chance to ask me questions if needed and also have the chance to share their artwork with the class once it is complete. Students are encouraged to work within a dedicated sketchbook to create a portfolio of artwork. Students can join this on-going class at any time and will begin working in their sketchbook during their first class with me. Students will have the opportunity to interact with me during class for support as needed, as well as talk and share with other students.

Pattern Making and Sewing Classes Women's wear, Home Textile
With so many things selling outside, still many times it doesn't quite fit our taste and style. With sewing and pattern making skills you can bring anything you've imagined to reality. With good sewing skills you can upscale any DIY project and make it look like you just purchased it at the designers boutique. Learning pattern making allows you to develop any garment from scratch and be sure that nobody has anything like this. I'm adjusting to any level of knowledge from the beginner to advanced. Sharing all the techniques and tricks I know. If you think that you are a hard learner I have a lot of patience and always will find the way to explain everything till I absolutely sure you understand. I'm a practicing fashion designer and have more then 10 years experience of teaching groups and in private.

I am a true believer that everyone is good at art, it just takes more time and practise for some! All the best :)
