Camilla Dixon

My tutoring is a constantly evolving project. It supports my creative work as it requires that I not only understand my processes but can apply them in a way that is useful to other people in their quest for creative flow. Harnessing a fluid and responsive working method, can address all sorts of practical or emotional obstacles that students face. It can be quite literally life-changing. I have delivered courses for twenty years for BA and MA students all over the UK, from Glasgow School of Art to The Royal College of Art.

 

The subject matter in my own work can be anything in the visual field – observed and simplified through drawing, remembered and abstracted through painting, and developed into an image or object through endless re-arrangement of materials and waiting; allowing time for the scraps to find their place and purpose.
