iPad Art Apps

The iPad is my main mobile art device and therefore that is what I am focusing on here. The main app I use is Procreate but I’ve included others that you may enjoy experimenting with. If you were to pick just one for drawing and painting, my recommendation would be Procreate. Click here for some accessories you may find useful. Click here for a summary of my upcoming workshops.

Originally from London, I studied drawing, sculpture and print-making at the Ruskin School of Fine Art and Drawing, Oxford University (while earning a degree in Physics), and subsequently studied at the Vrije Academie in The Hague, The Netherlands. I\'ve been using digital paint since 1991, including every version of Painter. I love teaching and have taught workshops and given presentations all over the world for the last twenty years. I create commissioned fine art paintings and perform live action painting and digital portraiture. I founded PaintboxTV in February 2009. Thank you for being part of this creative community!
