Bella Franks

Session Leader

Bella has been drawing at Draw since 2013 and regularly life models here. She is founder of 'Bella's Bits & Bobs', running life drawing events in living rooms, boats and boardrooms all over London, and leads the popular 'Models & Music' Life drawing evening session at the Draw studio.

What Bella says about her work:

"I have always loved drawing but my real passion began when I started life drawing - almost 16 years ago! 
I draw figurative subjects but use non-representational colours to bring them vibrancy & life. My favourite angle to draw the human form is from a foreshortened view point - I love tackling the complicated shapes and lines which often don't look like a body at all, but when the drawing is finished it comes together in a lovely way. I draw because drawing is my meditation & it forever gives me the stillness & joy that can otherwise be lost in a whirlwind life."
