FOR PET PORTRAITS:
"Before attending Jessie's workshop, I have not attempted any form of portraiture drawing because I find it intimidating and difficult. Jessie's method is easy to follow and accessible even for a complete beginner. Personally I am blown away with my own results after 1 workshop. If you have always thought that you can't draw, you will definitely change your mind after this! "
