ONLINE ART SCHOOL
SMILE. CREATE. EVOLVE
Welcome to my Online Art School where I am thrilled to be offering 1:1 Tutored Sessions, Group Workshop Series 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 the current Group Workshop series on offer and 1:1 Tutored Sessions.
Allow me to guide you through a structured 4 weekly workshop series in a limited group size, exploring mark making freedom, alternative techniques and application in a fashion context. Expect LIVE demos, real-time tasks, feedback, Q&A, bags of inspiration, but above all lots of experimental fun. Starts November 2021. Please email by clicking Sign Up below, to register your interest as spaces are very limited.
Dates: Every Wednesday in November at 1.00pm - 2.00/2.15pm* BST (3rd/10th/17th/24th November)

Word on the Street
Brilliant. Really knowledgeable and talented.
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.
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.
1:1 TUTORED SESSIONS
Tailored to individual requirements
I am a big advocate of the arts and its ability to harness well being. "Painting is like breathing to me...". I am very happy to be offering ongoing 1:1 tutored sessions. Whatever your requirements, let me be your personal artistic guide.
Personable sessions with feedback and suggestions for research and tasks to increase your confident mark making and application of materials and above all to let go, dive into experimental heaven and have fun. Please get in touch if you have any questions, I would be very happy to hear from you.
60 minute zoom calls, at a date/time that suits you.
