"It is seven years since I had a one-to-one crit, with someone who was prepared to look at my work and tell me, honestly, what they saw. And the connections, sparks, observations will nourish me for a long while yet. It was a liberating experience, the chance to say out-loud one's doubts and hopes, and to return to one's work feeling energised." - feedback from artist.
"Freddie Robins struck me as a real people's person, fiercely passionate about life and art. Down to earth, realistic and approachable, I felt immediately at ease during a recent crit with her. Freddie's extensive teaching experience and the numerous conversations she's had around art and artists is evident. It enables her to get to the very heart of what makes people tick in terms of their artistic practice in a very short space of time. Certainly, it's what I felt she did with mine and though equally as challenging as she is complimentary, I came away feeling energised and inspired to change certain aspects of my practice while preserving the parts I'm most proud of."- feedback from artist.
