Speed-painting Demonstrations

"Remarkable! I only went away for five minutes, and came back, and you'd almost finished...!"

Lois Cordelia regularly performs live "speed-painting" demonstrations all over East Anglia and beyond, at art shops, galleries, cafes, art clubs, exhibitions and corporate events. Working on a large scale using acrylics, she explores a wide range of subject matter, including portrait-painting from a live model, human and animal portraits, townscapes and landscapes. Lois often chooses unusual canvases, making creative use of the original to contribute to a new artwork. Her speed-paintings typically feature sweeping strokes and bold colours, including iridescent, shimmering and metallic paints.







 

Live Paper-Cutting Demonstrations and Talks, by Lois Cordelia
 

Lois Cordelia cuts intricate designs out of paper, using a Swann-Morton scalpel. Her paper-cuts are a synthesis of swift, energetic sketches and painstakingly precise cuts of a surgical blade. Each exquisite miniature may take many hours to complete. Lois's paper-cut designs have been published in books, journals and music albums in the United Kingdom, Germany, Austria and the United States. She welcomes an audience while she works, so don't be shy - come along and watch, ask questions, and be inspired to have a go yourself!

Lois also presents richly illustrated talks on the history of paper-cut art from around the world (China, Japan, Turkey, Europe, Mexico, and so on),
for art clubs and other private groups on request - please get in touch via the contact page. Thank you.
