Creative Consultations

with Holly surplice

"Discussing your work with Holly is a bit like having a chat with your best mate - if your best mate was actually an incredibly

experienced artist and picture book maker!" KATIE EVERETT

.................................................................................................................................

Holly Surplice has been a professional Artist, Illustrator, Children's Book Creator & Art Tutor for nearly 20 years. During this time she has tutored & lectured within Edinburgh College of Art's renowned Illustration department, taught privately & run Creative Workshops across the country as well as online.

 

"Teaching and giving constructive creative critique is something that I find immensely fulfilling. I love the process of helping individuals to build their creative confidence and reinforce their own artistic strengths." 

 

Calling on her wealth of experience and passion for visual communication, Holly is an enthusiastic and perceptive tutor who communicates constructively with individuals to help them further their individual creative pursuits. 

So what is a creative consultation, and who's it for?

 

Think of it as having someone on-hand to guide you, using constructive critique and advice, to help you grow your own creative skills in a way that's entirely personal to you. There's no copy & paste instruction here; one of Holly's skills is identifying and exploring an artist's strengths and weaknesses, then helping to explore that with helpful, tangible advice and instruction.

 

 

You may be a new creative or a seasoned professional, we all need a helping hand and a fresh pair of eyes at times to help in the creative process.

Perhaps you feel too close to a project and an unbiased point of view is just what's needed to push past that creative block.

.....................................................................................................................

 

Maybe you're just dipping your toes into the world of creativity and need a bit of help to get beyond feeling intimidated or overwhelmed - time to banish that 'imposter syndrome' once and for all!

 

Holly can help with all sorts of things: picture book development, portfolio preparation, character development, project critique and unlocking creative blocks. She's also just the person to help navigate your way through your illustration degree...

"The help you gave me on Monday was sooo useful! I found my tutorial quite fun for the first time ever, cos I actually knew what I was doing!" KP
