Qualified Artist and Designer offering classes to individuals looking for a new hobby.

Methodology

My classes are a transcendence of emotions, I allow my students to be lead by the tools wether its a paintbrush or a pencil that they are using. I see art as an expression of the true self and I need to lead, rather than to be lead.

Background

I have worked as a Visual Merchandiser at Zara and a freelance stylist. For the past few years at Spree as a Trend and Fashion producer at Spree, in charge of market research, handling and ordering products for shoots, analyzing materials and production with the buying team, researching trends for upcoming seasonal drops, coordinating with my colleagues on shoot productions, and styling seasonal campaigns.

I have a qualification in Visual Arts and Fashion Designer, which gives me the advantage to teach from both my expertise.
