FACE Portrait Studio
YOUR FACE MY ART! - Pop-Up Portrait Studio
FACE is contemporary take on the role of traditional street and seaside portrait artists. Artists are invited to consider their own response to the Portrait, using any medium or style of their choice, from sketching, painting, sculpture, conceptual, digital etc. Various guest artists will join us throughout the year. Drop in and get your portrait done in under 15 minutes, and leave with original artwork for just £15.

We can also bring our Portrait studio to your premises! Great fun for Parties, Weddings and so on. Get in touch for a quote for your function.
For this project, Zoe will create quick expressive, pen and line drawings on water-colour paper, and coloured with light areas of water-colour wash.
Zoe is better known as an abstract painter of colourful, organic scenes. She lives in St.Ives and teaches at Barnoon.
Gazelle creates colourful digital drawings on her ipad, which are then printed onto high quality archival papers - with a wireless printer. Her portraits from #yourfacemyart are going to form a book of portratis. She is an artist living in St.Ives
Joe creates expressive portraits, often working on very large canvasses. His style mixes up realism with a grafitti aesthetic.
Joe is from St.Ives, and will be making a guest appearance in December creating quick drawings on paper for #yourfacemyart
Marie is a painter, and long standing member of the St.Ives Society of Artists. For the FACE project she is making a departure from her colourful abstract paintings. Her portrait studies are exquisite, A6 sized pen and graphite images.
Erin is an illustrator and print maker and for her portraits, combines mono-printing and layered motif printing, with expressive drawings to create her dreamlike portraits.
Erin also runs her own paint company 'Pick Pretty Paints', based in the Sloop Craft Studios, in St.Ives.
Bobby Wotnot is better known for his abstract drawings, built up with tiny dots and marks.
For these portrait sessions he will be drawing tiny profile portraits onto shards of pottery found on the beaches of St.Ives. Reminiscent of Greek Ostraca, these are then presented in a decorated gift box, in a 'Wotnot' style!
