My name is Nicky and I would like to help you achieve some of your life's goals, be that improving your English or enjoying the creation of a new painting.
My background is in French and Art and I have always liked cultures and languages. I speak English and French and am working on my Spanish. I Have a CELTA (Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults) in ESL and have taught classes from Elementary to Advanced. I have many hours of experience in private tutorials and really have enjoyed the people I have met so far on my journey.
I have an Associate's degree in Commercial Art and even though I was a forms designer for 8 years, I have always preferred the fine arts. From 2009 to 2010, I was the student of a professional portrait painter in my community. He taught many things that I would happily pass on to you.
I have been teaching ESL in Miami for a year and a half. These classes have been comprised of students from all over the world at various levels of ability.
Before that I tutored a young woman from Morocco for 6 months at a very beginner level.
A few years ago, I also taught school children at Sylvan Learning Center in Greensboro, NC, for about a year.
Painting animals and scenery is one of my passions. I enjoy the sensation of the lack of awareness to the passage of time.
After graduation from the university, I went to the local community college and received an AS in Commercial Art, but my true love was and is fine art.
For a year, I took private lessons with a professional portrait artist and have tried to use all the pointers presented to me.
My focus as of late has been pet portraiture and I am now thinking of venturing into the world of travel painting where I chose a country and paint a series of works from photos of famous and less famous locations in that country.
I have used most mediums, but prefer acrylics and oils. Acrylics have served me well for painting canvases in pet portraiture, rocks and even polymer clay.
