My name is Steve. I'm from Toledo, OH but I've lived in Tucson, AZ with my wife, Theresa since late 2005. I'm 46 years old and have been in love with art since I was 5 years old. I'm a US Army veteran who served his country proudly. I used my GI Bill to attend The Art Center Design College (now the Southwest University of Visual Art) and earned a BA in Illustration with a Minor in Painting. During my years as an Illustration major, I also took a year of Graphic Design as well as a year of animation to be well-rounded in other media.
Currently, I'm co-owner of an apparel company, and creator and owner of a Studio. In addition to that, I was an art teacher right after I graduated from college for Compass High School from 2010-2011. Unfortunately, I had to give up my full-time position as an art teacher to focus on the apparel company and Studio. Tutoring would be easier for me to devote designated time(s) for individuals needing specific instructions.
My teaching/tutoring style traditional art begins with seeing object as shapes then understanding how to create objects from shapes, demonstrations, exercises, roughs, and creating final illustrations. With Photoshop and Illustrator, I approach tutoring the same way but I also tutor/instruct how to use and become confident with the various tools, panels, brushes, layers, and selections to assist students with mastering the applications and build confidence in his/her Wacom tablet skills.

I hope to hear from you soon!
I own Adobe CS4, but I mostly work with Illustrator and Photoshop. I create logos with both programs; however, I use Illustrator to create and manipulate fonts, type, as well as shape creation and manipulation, digital coloring, and brush strokes. I also know how to create 3D objects and apply filters to them.
