My work
I am a fine artist by profession. My work consists abstract painting, performance,video projection and printmaking and graphic design. I am therefore a cross over artist when it comes to graphic design.

Teaching philosophy

I believe (and have proven through 5 years fo teaching) that, a student can be motivated to learn to be creative in the arts. I am a motivator, always seeking to make sure that I find my students strengths and weaknesses. Teaching art,whether it be fine art (painting,drawing,printmaking) or Graphic design (Photoshop and Video Production using Adobe Premiere) requires one to understand the students needs and tailor the lesson to meet them while at the same time fulfilling the role of educating them on the fundamentals of the subject. Each student is different and therefore requires special attention-which I provide. In my years of teaching, I have left students motivated,educated and confident about what they can do. In my view, every student is gifted, it is my role as a teacher to identify that gift and help the student fully utilize it.

My guarantee

Given the chance,I will open up the world of art in a short space of time,the student will be guaranteed to have learnt enough to carry on by themselves in 3-10 lessons.
Why? Because I love what I do which is art and I do what I love, which is teaching!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Photoshop

Qualification: I have a Masters in Fine Art Degree from Slade School of Fine Art-2010. Photoshop was a key element in my studies as I practiced in a studio based program. It became essential to learn and master the use of the subject because of the cross disciplinary element of the Masters in Fine art course

Drawing

I have a Masters in Fine Art from Slade School of fine art, London (2010). I also have a Post graduate Diploma in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London (2008).

Drawing is a key element in any Art course. It is the foundation of all other disciplines with in the profession and therefore has to be mastered to attain the level of qualification I have.

Painting

I have a Master of Fine Art Degree from the Slade School of Fine Art,London UK. This degree course covered painting, graphic design, performance art, drawing and video production.

Video Production

I use Adobe Premiere Pro video editing software on a daily basis. I have also taught Adobe Premiere pro along side iMovie at Bsix College in London UK. My understanding of the software allows me to be able to teach from introductory levels to intermediate.
