ONLINE ART SCHOOL

SMILE. CREATE. EVOLVE

Welcome to my Online Art School where I am thrilled to be offering Group workshops series, half day workshops, 1:1 Tutored Sessions and occasional In Person Workshops. 

Since leaving London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martin's College of art, I have accumulated 20+ years experience creating artworks that originate from fashion and the figurative form, evolving to encompass conceptual & figurative art.  I have worked for a huge variety of clients using my artistic voice as a visual language and have been fortunate to feature in several magazines - Fashion & Others; a few illustrated covers too (a rarity in these digital times!). I have exhibited across the globe and currently showing at The CAMP gallery in Miami. 


I firmly believe in the desire to grow as an artist, willingness to experiment and the belief it's never too late to learn something new.  Allow me to guide you through your creative journey as we explore, experiment and have fun together through a variety of real-time tasks, discussions and feedback.​

Please scroll down for full details for the current workshops and 1:1 sessions being offered.

TESTIMONIALS

Word on the Street

Brilliant. Really knowledgeable and talented.

Katy Embry

Isher was super engaging and confident when making work to show us which is daunting for most! It also felt like a privilege to have this insight from her. Fashion often feels like quite a secretive industry so it's great to be able to engage with this more now as an outsider, because of Isher's guidance.

Corrianna Clarke

Isher was very engaging and understated, particularly given her talent. I often find I get intimidated at events like this but she was incredibly nice and open.
