Portray Me!

Baby and children watercolour portraits


Who am I

My name is Brigitte Antal and I studied Fashion at the Moholy-Nagy University in Budapest.

At the time studying applied arts meant being at ease with all different genres and techniques in fine art with lots of drawing and painting from live models.

I've been living in the UK for the past 10 years and I took part in many projects aimed at children as an Art Practitioner mainly with the Artillery in Walthamstow.

Working with children is such a great way for me to engage and share my creativity.

In the meantime my love for portrays returned and being surrounded by these amazing little subjects inspired me to create more and more portrays as gifts.

I then had my beautiful daughter and painting became a way to express this new tremendous love but also to mark milestones and close chapters. A bit of magic that helps me walk around and inspect these wonders and accept their transient nature.

It's a gift I want to share with you through every portrait.
