As a skilled tennis player and aspiring artist, I received a full tuition scholarship to the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. Graduating in 2002 magna cum laude with a BFA in Illustration and a minor in art history, I had every intention of becoming a freelance illustrator. I was receiving accolades for my work such as Illustrator of the Year from my university, honors in two national Los Angeles Society of Illustrators competitions, and a gold medal for “Herd the Call”, another art competition, this one sponsored by The Blue Cube Gallery in Columbus, OH. However it was the opportunities I had to travel abroad during my college years that really defined me. I have seen tulip fields in The Netherlands, shanty towns in South Africa, and I have eaten Italian pizza in Italy. Those opportunities just increased my need to know more and experience more and share them with students through the visual arts.

I taught secondary Visual Arts for six years. I was involved in everything I could be. Coach, National Art Honor Society sponsor, AP instructor, prom coordinator, SACS accreditation co-chair, organizer and leader of academic trips to New York City, Italy and England, chaperon of mission trips to West Virginia, Washington DC and Costa Rica – these are all roles I actively engage in to enhance what I bring to the classroom and as well as my relationship with students. Arts education is extremely important to me, but life lessons, global understanding, these are equally important and why I love what I do.

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

I currently teach PhotoShop to 10th-12th graders. For this subject, I will assess where the student is currently and what he or she hopes to achieve with the program, then I will design sessions with those goals in mind. The primary focus for someone completely new to the program will be to learn PhotoShop's major tools and capabilities but to also learn the basics of good design.

Art History

I assess what the student's primary needs are, whether it is to focus on a specific period of art or whether the student needs a general overview, and then I will formulate my session upon those needs. I minored in Art History during undergraduate school and am currently working on a Master's Degree in Medieval Art History. I have also traveled to world famous museums in Chicago, New York, London, Rome,Vatican City, Florence, and Amsterdam to increase my visual arts contextual understanding and overall appreciation that I now share with students in my classroom.

Drawing

I currently teach Drawing to 9th-12th graders. My degree is in illustration which involved taking five drawing courses at the collegiate level. For this subject, I would assess where the student is currently and what they hope to achieve and design the sessions around those things. If there is a specific interest such as cartooning, portraiture, perspective, etc. in lieu of a broader more general scope, I will be happy to focus on just that area.

Painting

I currently teach Painting to 10th-12th graders as an advanced level course. For this subject, I would assess where the student is currently, what they hope to achieve and design the sessions around those wants and needs. I use ink and watercolor to produce my work. My strengths and interests are in watercolor and acrylics. If you are specifically interested in oil painting I would not be the tutor for you.
