A ROYAL artist returned to her former school to offer advice and tips to students.

Isobel Peachey was invited back to St Augustine’s RC High School in Billington to share her experiences.

Year 11 GCSE art and design students were shown a selection of works and sketchbooks so they could see how her art work has developed over time.

Isobel, who was officially commissioned to paint the Queen, met up with former teachers and looked through the school’s archive.

Isobel is currently working on commissions and is exhibiting her paintings.
