Ann Mackowski is an internationally exhibited artist and teacher. After working for years in the art world, she became concerned with its insularity. Speaking to non-artists, she also realised how common it was for poor early educational experiences to put off creative adults from making art later in life. To address this problem, she founded Soho Life Drawing in 2016 to provide an affordable and accessible drop-in creative outlet in central London for artists and non-arts based professionals alike.
In addition to life drawing and illustration, Ann is an experienced landscape artist and tutor and was featured on Sky’s Landscape Artist of the Year. She provides private and group instruction.
Jennifer Moore is an artist and beekeeper, and has been teaching since 2011. She holds regular private illustration, drawing, and painting classes in Sussex, with favourite subjects including chickens, bees and horses, and has been with Soho Life Drawing from the very beginning. She’s engaged in multiple collaborative ventures with SLD such as “Eat, Drink and Draw”, a combination life-drawing and cake drawing event, and Soho Life Drawing’s inaugural student exhibition. She is a heartfelt supporter of experience based learning, and using art as a medium for education and awareness in other fields. In her own practice as a life drawing artist, she particularly enjoys line drawings and using charcoal.
