Pilar de la Torre

I am passionate about painting, drawing and sculpting from life. 

My aim is the pursuit of continued development of my art skills and knowledge, which I do by attending workshops to further my skills set.

 I currently teach painting and drawing at Melbourne Studio of Art which is something that reinforces my commitment to constant and neverending improvement of my craft.
