Lovely woman, but she needs to become more familiar with contemporary art. I know one must have life drawing skills, but that was the only style she appreciated and disliked anything of another genre

She doesn't have patience for others, she has to realize that we are only learning and not all the next Da Vinci

She was a nice lady but not a very good Teacher as her methods were dated and had no real knowledge of the contemporary art world. She kept to the tried and tested methods.I am an artist now and a sucessful one but unfortunately I cannot list her as an influence.

I do like her personally, but if you go on to an art college, you realise she is a terrible teacher - in comparison to say BCFE or NCAD. She just tells you to draw but she gives very little advice on how to draw, and her method of teaching life drawing is NOT GOOD!! On the other hand she does give a lot of encouragement to go on and develop your skills in college if she feels you are good enough, and her class was very laid back and fun. just my opinions though.

Had her for the inter in 86. Only did art coz it was easy, I have zero talent. She was really motherly though, I remember her playing Neil Young to inspire us.
