If you have seen Disney Animated movies such as Lion King, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Tarzan - among others, you have seen some of my work. Some of this work can be seen in the book "The Art of the Hunchback of Notre Dame." My experience at Disney in Layout was an experience that honed my artistic skills while allowing great insights into film making. This is a fascinating creative world that needs to be passed on to others; and through traditional skills of drawing and painting, as well as the digital world of Photoshop, I will help you actualize your creative potential.
Having drawn since the age of six, I have added portrait painting, figure drawing, and Photoshop to my repertoire of skills, complementing my perspective and Layout skills at Disney. As an Art Center College of Design graduate in Illustration, I learned the value of long hours and focused hard work. This structured approach is critical to reaching competence and beyond at any level of drawing, painting, as well as the digital world. Applying traditional painting and drawing skills to Photoshop, you will learn how to execute digitally what you visualize in your mind, with step by step basics, to more advanced techniques. If you are a beginner or more advanced, I will present to you lesson plans that will progressively build upon fundamentals until you gain confidence and start realizing your unique gifting.
The only shortcuts to learning creative skills is that there are no shortcuts - but the finished product is that much more gratifying. Let's work together to the goal of bringing your skills to life with my experience. I am also available for mentoring in the Verbal and Written language arts, and offer the same disciplined step by step process in learning in these areas as well.
