I am a natural artist. I am proficient in illustration and different styles of painting and sculpture. I work in all media, but lately I have streamlined my preferences down to Photoshop almost exclusively, because it not only allows one to "paint" or illustrate like the "real thing", it is a wonderful tool for photo-imaging, or retouching. I am self-taught for the most part, but that process began in the late 1980s. Any shortcuts or tricks I have picked up along the way were gained by experience and/or experimenting over that time frame. A word of advice (disclaimer) - NO ONE can teach you how to draw (so please do not expect to receive this gift as a result of being tutored)! I can, however, help you with mechanical skills that will improve your in place, God-given natural abilities. I can teach you how to blend and create colors, and suggest the best ways to do this in any medium. I can also show many techniques to achieve different effects in Photoshop. In short, the sky is the limit, and if you are one of us who can draw, I can help you "kick-start" your abilities to the next level. I will put you on a path that will open up many new avenues of creativity. I wish I had known someone like me when I was starting to learn Photoshop!

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 illustrate in Photoshop as well as photo-imaging. I have done a lot of jewelry retouching and I have also done rotoscope special effects for the movie "Walking Tall Part II".

Drawing

I am a naturally gifted artist with strong drawing and painting skills. I have studied at the University of Texas at Arlington and Dallas Art Institute. My areas of expertise cover practically all media available (hard copy or computer). For examples, please check my personal WyzAnt photos.

Painting

I am a proficient painter in all media, from oils to airbrush. I mostly "paint" on the computer lately, as it is much cleaner and more forgiving. I prefer to work in Photoshop with a WACOM drawing tablet, as it reacts just like hard copy. I am not "married" to any one style of painting, but I personally prefer the neo-classical style. Check out my WyzAnt photo section for work examples.
