What is your favourite thing about Art Eye Deer?

I wanted this product when I was a teenager! I wanted to see how things were created but I didn't have the patience to sit and watch someone for hours while they created an artwork. Art Eye Deer's short and informative lessons are exactly what I needed when I was a teenager.

I studied Visual Communication and Graphic Design, did several short courses at art school and have always created my own artworks since I was a child.


Have you ever had an exhibition?

Yes, several. I've had to take a break while my kids are little but I'll get back to exhibiting in coming years.
