Adobe Illustrator

I am a part time Illustrator. I am working with two published authors on my first children's book. I have worked in Illustrator for a few years and in the industry for about as long. I hope to teach you.

Adobe Photoshop

As a part time Illustrator- I use Photoshop often. I have a BFA in drawing and printmaking but I have taken college level courses locally in Digital art creation. I am familiar with most aspects of Photoshop and can teach fundamentals.

Art Theory

I teach color theory, composition, and a variety of art theory subjects to my adult painting students. I run an art program at a private art school and teach 20 plus adults. I have taken advanced color theory at the college level as part of my BFA. I have also worked on elements of composition and am a big fan of learning from other artists. One of the activities that I enjoy doing with my students is to have them map the composition of masterworks to understand value and other fundamentals of art like compliments and contrast.

Drawing

I teach painting, drawing and I used to manage an adult art program at Bethesda art works. I focus on teaching perspective and life drawing. I have been teaching drawing for 5 years. I have a BFA in printmaking and drawing and I have studied drawing since I was a child. I have been trained as a art instructor by a local nonprofits as an instructor. These nonprofits include ArtWorks, Pyramid Atlantic, and others.

I manage three sections of an adult painting program. I am certified in watercolor, acrylic, and oils. I have worked as a teacher for a program for the national endowment for the arts that employed mural painting.

I am training to be an Art therapist and am working at an inpatient child treatment center. I have taken mental health rotations at Columbia University when I was enrolled as an Occupational therapist. I'm familiar wih many modules and treatment methodologies including DBT, talk therapy and art therapy.
