Life Drawing Class

Dear Tanya

Just a quick email to say a big thank you for organising such a fantastic life drawing class for the last year or so. It’s been great for me to get back into life drawing after so many years and I really appreciate all your helpful advice and positive comments. I think that you got the balance between being serious about the drawing, but with a friendly relaxed atmosphere within the class, absolutely right.

I was sorry not to be say goodbye to you in person, but with one thing and another I had a very busy Summer and the life drawing got put on hold. But I’m hoping to go back and join the group at Broomhill again soon. Although I’m sure that you will be greatly missed by everyone.

Best wishes for all your future projects.

Beautiful Wedding Portrait

Wanting to gift Beth, my wife, a surprise after our wedding I asked Tanya to paint us together on our special day.

Our portrait is stunning with incredible intricate detail capturing the moment of our first kiss perfectly. It is one of our most prized possessions and we are both very grateful to Tanya for all the time and hard work she put into it!

Hi Tanya,
Just wanted to thank you for the excellent and enjoyable Life Drawing Class last Tuesday.
I really appreciated your clear, gentle style of teaching and your kind encouragement.
It all appeared effortless and so there obviously had been a lot of careful planning and attention to detail.
Looking forward to next week!

Wedding Caricatures

Tanya was a delight to have at our wedding. She is professional, and made our guests feel at ease while they were in her seat 🙂 she works fast, and the results speak for themselves. I had lots of compliments on the work she did, and people are still mentioning now how much they loved our caricaturist! She was a pleasure to work with!
