The Making Of: Kymara’s Live Music Video / My First Music Video

I know, I know, when will it end! NEVER!! I absolutely revel in challenging myself and learning new ways to create. I was asked by local up-and-coming artist and very close friend – Kymara – to make a Live Music Video.

Movement modelling

This week I did my first life model class where, unlike the extreme stillness I have to adopt at work, I had to move! I’d heard of this type of class before – I knew other models that had done a fair share of their own movement classes – but it always seemed to passContinue reading “Movement modelling”

Create & Drink – Tie Dye

It was a bit of a head-scratcher thinking of what to do for the second Create & Drink 2022. As much as materials like oil paints, acrylics, watercolours, colour pens and pencil are all very different in their result, I wanted each event to be so different from the last, that I wasn’t constantly buyingContinue reading “Create & Drink – Tie Dye”

Create and Drink – The Comeback!

If you’ve been following my extensive events and workshops, you will know, that before lockdown, I was running an arts and crafts class for adults called Create and Drink – the adult part being that I served bottomless wine. Each month I would do a different medium of art, usually themed to a celebration duringContinue reading “Create and Drink – The Comeback!”

HOLA FEA! At Brighton’s Feminist Book shop.

So, we got the idea on paper, got it on the computer, made it look all nice, stuck it on the website looking all professional, but what now? Where did I take it from here? Putting it online was usually my final goal, but now it was time to aim higher. I remembered the adviceContinue reading “HOLA FEA! At Brighton’s Feminist Book shop.”

Figure Drawing: A complete guide to drawing the human body By Jake Spicer (featuring ME… Jade Hylton).

Jake was the first person I worked with as a life model, it was the first consistent work I had once I had gone self-employed and that was now back in April 2019. It was not easy going self-employed, but the doors it opened for me, were ones I never knew existed. I had notContinue reading “Figure Drawing: A complete guide to drawing the human body By Jake Spicer (featuring ME… Jade Hylton).”

Drawversity! Originally created for in real life classes, but due to covid, I have teamed up with Brighton Draw to do a paid photoshoot to try and help eliminate the class and culture barriers of life art and modelling. From working in the field for a few years now, and living in such a creativeContinue reading “Scouting for BIPOC Models in Brighton & Hove”
