Freya Pocklington

Freya trained at Edinburgh College of Art and UAL and teach at GOSH, V&A and as a lecturer. My drawings have been shown in the RSA, Mall Galleries, Art Below for Frieze, James Freeman Gallery and others. My work is held in the V&A, British Museum, RSA and NOA collections.

Describe your approach to teaching.

My classes are fun and supportive to help students develop confidence in their work. I teach traditional techniques to begin with then move to more experimental approaches alongside helping students to develop independence.

What inspires your own work?

I love museums, Italy, tree houses and animals. My work currently researches the human- animal bond and animal celebrities on the internet.
