So You Think You Can't Draw Faces?

Truly understanding what you're drawing has a profound effect on the outcome.  I hear so many people say they can't draw faces, and see many fashion illustrations where the faces are letting down the standard of the whole drawing. So, I decided to create an intensive workshop which starts with the cranial structure of the head in the manner of fine artists, then takes it all the way to beautiful fashion faces. This has been a very popular workshop each time I have run it, and has had an incredible effect on participants’ drawings. The three key views of the face will be covered, taking the faces from studies to stylized fashion faces.

The Patsyfox Drawing Salon

Vendor since 2014

I’m a Melbourne-based designer and illustrator and have been working in the fashion industry since graduating from university in the late 80’s.

After years of travelling the world and designing for some of Australia’s favourite fashion brands, I saw the light and now make illustration – my first love – my number one.

Besides keeping up with, I mix freelance work with teaching fashion illustration and design at RMIT and in my own boutique classes at The Patsyfox Drawing Salon.  I have a line of Bridal Sketches, illustrating brides in their beautiful dresses by commission, and am currently illustrating for Elle magazine.

I am a gun for hire, whose work can be found in magazines, print advertisements, fashion websites, brochures, invitations, design storyboard presentations, books, trend forecasting, greeting cards, and stationery.


I design-draw-write-photograph, therefore I am.
