Enthusiastic and encouraging Illustrator and Storyteller with a wide breadth of experience, including the fundamentals of drawing and painting, illustration, visual development and concept pitching

Methodology

Moving through my own time as a student of fine art, illustration and eventually art education, I was a tutor and an encouraging presence to my peers.

We all know that development in the artistic journey can be long and often a disheartening process, with many twists and turns along the way, and that is where I can step in. I believe everyone is unique and needs an individualized approach to their education. My style of teaching doesn’t fit the model for simply “passing a class” and includes more of the big picture thinking. It’s wonderful to feel the glow of a distant dream, but it’s important to know how to get there.

We start where you are and will discuss your goals for the future (even though they may change in time). Guidance (both methodically and conceptually) along with encouragement is what I promise to provide to all of my students.

Background

Although my background is primarily in traditional illustration, I have a broad palette of experiences to draw from —catch those puns?

My specialties include the illustration process, traditional media (especially watercolor), figure drawing, concept development and pitching, visual development, plein air and Photoshop.

I have over 3 years of experience with tutoring and teaching, over 10 years as a freelance illustrator and 2 years developing concepts and pitching them within a Fortune 500 toy company as an Imbedded Innovator.
