Portrait Conversation #2
Friday, April 17, 2020, 10AM PDT
Special Guest: Ryan Francois


Please join this very special inaugural episode of my first Portrait Conversation featuring special guest Ryan Francois. Ryan, a world renowned master Lindy Hop Swing Dance Choreographer and Performer, 2 time winner of the U.S. Open and American Swing Dance Championships. Ryan is originally from my home town of London. He will join us live for this Portrait Conversation from Saint Petersburg, Russia, where he is now based.

The Portrait Conversation series are portraits in words and paint. In each Portrait Conversation my special guests share inspirational stories about their lives and artistic journey, while I draw a live portrait sketch of them on my iPad, sharing the process with the audience throughout the conversation.

I will post a link here for registering for this Portrait Conversation. This will be a livecast Zoom meeting. If you’re new to Zoom please look over my Zoom 101 page.

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!
