Tutor Description

Cleo Broda is a London based artist. After a Foundation at Rhode Island School of Design, she studied painting at Glasgow School of Art and gained an MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art. Her work is often site-specific and uses a range of media from drawing and print to moving image and sewn construction. The diversity of her own practice means that she has a particular understanding of the challenges of presenting different types of work in portfolio form. She has taught for nearly twenty years on art foundation and degree courses giving her extensive experience of working with students to prepare portfolios that present their work to its best advantage.
