“Julia at London Art Portfolio was a great support as I was in the process of my art education, and where I subsequently was accepted into UAL. Julia is highly knowledgeable in a variety of art disciplines…
…and was able to advise me and reference targeted works related to my practice, which was effective and efficient. In addition, her personable approach made the process so much more clear, and assisted me in efficiently implementing and exploring different approaches. Julia was a welcoming independent, knowledgeable support to me as I developed my professional artistic aspirations.”

“My 6-week portfolio course with Julia was invaluable in helping me to create a portfolio that led to my successful application to LCC’s postgraduate diploma in graphic design.
My time at London Art Portfolio also acted as the perfect bridge between my first degree (in English and History of Art) and my change of direction to art school. Having not done any art or design since A Level, Julia’s supportive approach helped build my confidence. In particular her help and advice in regards to building sketchbooks and displaying research has been helpful all through my postgraduate studies, where sketchbooks are an essential element, and has put me at a definite advantage to those less familiar with this way of working.
I loved my time at London Art Portfolio and Julia’s support and expertise encouraged me to further pursue graphic design and was instrumental to my successful application to UAL.”

Julia has been a tremendous help to me in developing my portfolio. I was able to explore many techniques and incorporate my day job skills as an interior stylist into my work in order to demonstrate my interest in textiles.
She made me explore textiles in a new manner and I found her help supportive and inspiring. Julia gave me the much needed direction that was essential to me (…) and could not have done it without Julia’s wonderful tuition.”

“London Art Portfolio’s workspace is welcoming and comfortable which provides a great atmosphere where you can develop your work. (…) I would just like to say I’m really grateful for Julia’s time..
…and experience and I’m so pleased to say that I’ve been accepted by more than one University including my first choice. This would not have been possible without the help of Julia.”
