About me

Hello! I'm Ali Hodgkinson Fogg, a figurative artist living and working in Folkestone. You can see some of my work here. I have been teaching art to children and adults in this beautiful seaside town since 2015.

Whatever their age, I teach my students the technical skills that are the bedrock of art practice - perspective, light and shadow, colour mixing, paint handling - while encouraging them to embrace their individuality and own way of seeing.  After all, it is uniqueness that takes art from good to great.

I studied Art History at the University of London; drawing, painting and printmaking at the Royal Drawing School in Shoreditch; and Portraiture at the Heatherley School of Fine Art in Chelsea.  I have a PGCE from the University of Greenwich and have worked in a wide variety of educational settings abroad and at home, including Kensington and Chelsea College where I was a Course Director.


I am DBS checked, and have public liability insurance.
