Hello!

My name is Dea and I am interested in helping you in your next creative endeavor. I'm great to work with if you have creative projects or school/work/personal projects that involve art, photography, or film. I have worked as a tutor covering writing, film, video production, film editing, basic 2D animation, photography and photo editing.

I am a mixed-media/multi-media artist with concentrations in photography and film. My work frequently includes digital manipulation and presentation. I also work with textiles and paints in conjunction with my photography.

I worked as a tutor for The Art Institute of Houston covering subjects like film and graphic design. I worked for the New York Film Academy during their summer program teaching kids about film production and storytelling.

I love working with people of all ages and backgrounds. I'm frequently complimented on my sunny disposition and friendly, upbeat attitude. I am patient, open-minded, and most of all, creative. Feel free to contact me with any questions if you think I can help with a subject I haven't listed. I'm looking forward to working with you!

Literature

I have read all of the greats from 1984 to several of Jane Austen's books. If you are writing a descriptive paper on these novels, I can help you with research and structure.

If you are focusing on interpretation of the novels, I can help you create a cohesive paper that highlights specific elements from each book.

Painting

As a student at the Art Institute, I gained invaluable knowledge about art. I took basic art classes that gave me a strong foundation in color, texture, and lighting. I can teach you about these subjects as well give you instruction on choosing the right brush size, and selecting between acrylic, oil, and watercolor paints.

Photography

I am what the industry refers to as a people photographer. I primarily photograph portraits- in studio settings, outdoor settings and natural environments. I have photographed locally, nationally and internationally.

I typically work with DSLR's, though I have also worked with old school film cameras. I tend to use Canons though I also love Nikon's line of digital cameras.

Additionally, photo editing is a critical element in my work. Photoshop allows me to manipulate ordinary photographs into works of art.

I can teach you photography basics, help develop your photographic and artistic eye, and teach you how to edit your photographs professionally.

Photography is a major passion of mine and I'm looking forward to sharing my knowledge about it!
