About the Tutors

Start Studios was founded by Carla Tebbutt and Fernanda Moreno in 2016. They are artists and mothers.

Carla studied Developmental Psychology and Art Therapy. More recently she has focused on mindfulness for children and child mental health awareness and well-being. She has worked with children aged 18 months to 16 years old. She is fascinated by shapes and colours and believes that creative expression is about the process and journey through which we use and develop our genius.

Fernanda studied graphic design at university in Mexico City, followed by a course in drawing, painting and photography at  Lorenzo de’ Medici Institute in Florence. She continued her art education at the Art Institute of Philadelphia where she studied Animation and Media arts.  “It was the perfect combination of my favourite things: drawing and cartoons.” She has worked in animation and design on TV, films and video in New York, Mexico City and London –  the Harry Potter series, The Hunger Games, Ex-Machina and James Bond to name but a few. She teaches animation at Notting Hill and Ealing High School.
