Background in Drawing, Painting and Photography:
I have a BFA in painting and drawing with electives in photography, printing and costume design. I have worked as a medical illustrator for over 20 years. My mother put a blank pad of paper and a box of crayons in front of me when I was a toddler and I have been drawing ever since - although my tools are now a tablet, stylus and computer. I can tutor both classical drawing (pencil/paper) or digital using Adobe Illustrator software.
Background in Sewing and Knitting:
Sewing was something I learned from my mother at an early age. I have experience with sewing fitted formal wear for clients (weddings), tailoring, pattern making and sewing home decor items such as curtains, slip covers, cushions and machine pieced quilts.
I learned to knit at the age of 10. I was knitting for years before it became popular again. In the past 10 years it has become a passion and I have pushed myself to learn new techniques. Lace knitting is a specialty of mine and I continue to seek more and more complicated designs to work on.
