Art School Preparation
- All Levels
Whether you're a fine artist interested in mood and mystery, an illustrator looking to improve technique, or a student who has no idea what you want to be, I have you covered!
I love working with students on a 1 to 1 basis or in small groups.
I take a very personalised approach, ensuring that the work that we do fits your style and meets your needs.
I see my role as that of a mentor/facilitator and I work to build up my students confidence and self esteem while supporting the development of their artwork.
Laura, supported my daughter to develop her art portfolio, and she was successful in her application to art college. Laura is an excellent art tutor and is up-to-date in current trends. My daughter and I experienced Laura as being trustworthy, patient, talented and well informed.
I hired Laura as a tutor to get me back into art. She was fantastic. What I found most impressive was her proficiency across multiple mediums. She taught me life drawing, ceramics, plaster casting, lino print and acrylic painting. She is amazing and very patient. She never got frustrated and helped me to build back my artistic confidence.
I did one on one portfolio preparation classes with Laura last year and found them super helpful. At the time I wasn't sure if I would be going onto third level or a PLC so we worked on stuff that would be suitable for both. I ended up going with a PLC and got accepted to both courses I interviewed for. Both interviewers commented on how my portfolio was well developed and communicated my creative process well. Laura is easy to get on with and chat to while still keeping on you on track. I've never had another class where I can be that productive while still having great conversations. She works with your creative process and helps you improve it rather than trying to force her own ideas into you. I'd whole heartedly recommend Laura to anyone who needs help with portfolio prep.
Laura was recommended to me by my Art teacher in school. I can't recommend her highly enough. I was very stuck in my portfolio, not sure if my work was good enough and not sure what to leave in or take out. She helped me so much with my work without me having to compromise my own style, and she showed me the value in trusting the process and not being afraid to try new things. She is humble and very talented, always focused on you as a student, on transmitting her passion for art, drawing, and design. A great professional, artist and teacher.
