About Me & My Story
Hi, I’m Lotti Brown. I teach drawing in your own way.
I create online drawing lessons and resources for people who secretly yearn for a more creative and fulfilling life.
I teach you drawing skills, while sprinkling in tips and techniques for how to connect with your inner passions to create awesome, personal art.
I believe that art isn’t just technique - it’s creativity, it’s personal, and it’s part of us all.
Drawing and art is for everyone and it’s not about making it difficult to do with fancy techniques that take years to master!
I spent many years of my career immersed in the more technical side of drawing, design and art.
And for a while I abandoned anything personally creative…
Then, I woke up one day and realised I was thoroughly miserable. It was affecting my whole way of life, my personal relationships, and even my health!
I understood how vital it was for me to tune back into my personal creativity for a meaningful life.
So I went back to creating my art in a very personal way again, discovering the subjects and themes that felt fulfilling to me and feeling free just to draw in my own way.
I create my art by combining my pen and marker drawings with creative digital techniques to allow me to play with colour and composition in a way that feels natural and intuitive, but at the same time very exciting.
I’ve also exhibited my art in national and international venues, even including my local museum.
It’s awesome! And since I let myself get really personal with my art and drawing, I haven’t looked back! My life feels positive, focused, bubbling over with creative ideas and very fulfilling.
And I want to help you to this place, too – learning drawing skills and developing the personal creative confidence to make beautiful, intuitive, and meaningful art.
When I’m not drawing…
When I’m not drawing and creating art resources for you, I love painting Warhammer miniature figures with my husband (who, incidentally, is a fantastic miniatures painter).
I’m also currently feeling all fingers and thumbs learning to play guitar… which is something I never thought I’d do.
I love living in a tiny, 150-year-old, Yorkshire country cottage with hubby and my gorgeous, big, fluffy collie, Noah.
He’s the boss of the household, for sure!
We love to take nice walks out in the fields together, checking out natural inspiration for my drawings (me) and some truly awesome sniffs (Noah).
Art & Design Career Experience
I’ve got more than two decades of various artistic and design career experience spanning interior design, garden design, colour consultancy, technical drawing (maps and plans), as well as textile and surface pattern design.
I’ve taught practical interior and garden design skills to thousands of homeowners online.
And I’ve personally consulted with hundreds of people to help them to choose paint and décor colours for their own home.
So I know all about how artistic design works, how to balance composition, how to use colours together, how to draw neatly and correctly… but I also know that art is more than just something technical!
It’s personal and creative - it’s your style, your personality, your way of doing it - and that’s what makes it enjoyable and fulfilling for you to do and interesting for other people to look at and enjoy too…
I’m absolutely passionate about sharing this - it’s so important for all of our emotional, mental, and physical health to be able to connect with our creativity.
It’s important to me to help you feel confident in your drawing and art and to help you learn to enjoy drawing and art in this personal, free, and creative way, too…
