About Me & My Story

Hi - I’m Lotti Brown of Drawing Your Way

Hi - I’m Lotti Brown of Drawing Your Way

Hi, I’m Lotti Brown. I teach drawing in your own way.

I create drawing resources for people who secretly yearn for a more creative and fulfilling life.

I teach them drawing skills, while sprinkling in tips and techniques for how to connect with their inner passions to create awesome, personal art.

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.

I spent several years 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 now get to just draw whenever I want and to create the art I love, which I sell as art prints via my website and license at a range of stockists worldwide.

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…

It’s an overgrown fluffy puppy - this is the ‘cuddle me (I’m Tired)’ face!

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).

 

5 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

If you’re dying to know more, here are five things you don’t know about me:

  1. My first job was cleaning in a Pontin’s holiday camp in sunny Morecambe. Actually, I loved it – all those happy holiday faces!

  2. I’m proudly one-quarter Polish. My Grandpa was a Polish resistance fighter in Warsaw.

  3. I live a grain-free lifestyle… which can be awkward at times – honestly, it makes me the most horrible dinner-party guest. But it’s also awesome. I love almond flour recipes and regularly bake almond flour bread and yummy almond flour pizzas.

  4. When I was a kid, I sometimes modelled knit wear for a British knitting magazine.

  5. At the end of a long day, I love wallowing in a hot bath with a good paperback.
