Originally from Florence, Italy, my experience as a fashion and graphic designer encompasses 12 years.
I have worked in production, where I digitally manipulated product photography (cars and clothing) for websites; as a graphic artist for gift bags creating illustrations, and as a fashion designer, designing clothing with Illustrator and Photoshop, while also creating exciting graphics for tee shirts.

I can easily teach all levels of students all the tricks of the trade, I will cover how to work with an array of projects and files. I will teach how to work with layers, channels, paths, actions, history, mask, retouch, illustrations, logo creations, fashion cads, presentations, graphic and pattern repeats, color correct and use of effects and filters.

Whether you are in still in school or you need to learn the programs for work or fun, I can help.
If you don't have the material I can provide the software during class, all you need is notes and a willingness to learn. I always give homework, so you practice at home what you learn in class, and I will review your exercises every time, until you become a pro.
