Welcome! I enjoy facilitating Leytonstone Life Drawing for the last 12 years. I take true pleasure being part of this communal journey and feel delighted to encourage the study of form and anatomy. We become the spectator of natural beauty and are allowed to immerse in the nudes magnificent forms and marvellous shapes. The quest of identity becomes relevant again, studying our mirror image: What do I see? How can I convey this ? Who am I? and who are you? When I ask, why do you enjoy Life drawing? the answer will be : It is being in the flow and forgetting everything else.
