Student Reviews:
"I loved every minute of my time at London Art Portfolio, hope to be back soon."
- Laura, USAPhotos of London Art Portfolio

“Following an intensive course with LAP for my personal and professional portfolio development, Julia helped me to bring my design approach to the next level and at the same time to improve my expertise as a graphic designer.

Furthermore, and beyond the course working with Julia has been a highly inspiring and enriching experience which truly added to my time in London.

Julia has been both to me, a great mentor but also a friend. Her expertise and advise were of great value to me and by sharing her experiences Julia lightened the spark to apply for my Master's degree.

Though I applied frankly last minute, I got my interview right away and will start with my (pre-) master in September. I am grateful for the time I got to spent and work with Julia and enjoyed every minute in the studio working with her.

I absolutely recommend LAP and if I ever move back to London I will pass by. For her future, personal life and career I wish Julia all the best.”

- Patricia, Graphic Designer


Parent Testimonial:
"Julia is very creative, patient and very supportive to her students, she gives a hint or a push when needed then leaves it to the student.

Julia has a positive,enthusiastic professional manner as well as a friendly relationship when working on a one on one basis with her students.

Julia aids her students to extend their skills and knowledge so they start to feel more confident in their own ability."

- Diane (Mother of Kate Rucker)
