I am British born, living in South Africa working as a restaurant owner with my family.
Art for me is therapy. It allows me to escape to wherever I am painting. With the stresses that come with running a restaurant (especially with family), art is the only thing that keeps me calm.
The challenges I have in art are creativity. I want people to look at my art and know that it was painted by me. I want an art identity. Plus I could do with learning more about figure painting.
Art Should Make You Smile

From an early age it was evident that Lauri had artistic talents. At the age of 10, she won an art competition for creating a famous scene from the Disney movie “The Sword in the Stone”. This drawing was exhibited at the local movie theater.

World of Dreams
I am Julia, a young artist from Russia. Art is my biggest passion and joy.
The biggest challenge in art is pursuing the perfection. So, that is why I would love to learn more about how to be more accurate in my technique.
I think that Drawing Academy is a good opportunity to learn more about art and ways of expressing the ideas. Winning is not my aim, Participation and sharing my art and ideas with people is already an award.
