Life Model

I have been a life model since 2019 working mostly around Sussex, for artists, sculptors, photographers and film makers. I am currently only doing head and hand modelling online, and will be releasing different photo packs for art references here. For more photos – and to support one of the local studios I model for and tutor with – please go to the Draw Brighton Patreon to get images of other professional life models and start drawing today!

Drawversity @ DRAW Brighton

“In this new session we celebrate the diversity of our city, a session is conceived and run by life model, artist and session leader Jade Hylton.  The aim of these new, regular sessions is to increase the diversity of the life modelling community by giving people who might not have considered themselves potential life models an opportunity to get more involved. Although we like to have a wide a range of models to posing at Draw we are limited by the people who put themselves forward and the greatest barrier to that is self selection: people who would like to model for life classes do not always apply because they are worried they don’t fit into an imagined ideal. In drawing classes our ideal is diversity and Jade has actively sought out potential models who might not have put themselves forward without encouragement.” For more information go to the Events page.
