About the speaker
“Do you see yourself in it?” An artists model’s experience of self image.
Topaz is an art events organiser; an artist’s model; an artist; an art teacher. For her drawing events platform, she brings together multi-disciplinary artists to create drawing events that showcase the finest creatives from Edinburgh and beyond. As a model she lends her image to the eyes and lenses of visual artists. Her own drawing and painting is most enjoyable when it’s done in secret, sketching snoozers on trains. Having absorbed by osmosis so much art tutoring, she occasionally teaches life drawing.

BRINGING BROSS BAGELS TO EDINBURGH. Instead of complaining about the lack of bagels this country has to offer – founder Larah Bross decided to do something about it. Working closely with local initiative Breadshare, Bross Bagels aims to bring authentic bagels to Edinburgh and beyond. Our rustic bagels are available to buy by the dozen or filled with some NY deli inspired fillings from our shop in Portobello and Leith.
