It didn’t matter how many tutorials or online videos I watched, nothing seemed to help. Then I tried reaching out to Sonserae for one-on-one tutoring. It was the best decision I ever made! Sonserae is very knowledgeable in Photoshop and digital painting. She is kind and patient with me to ensure I fully understand everything she’s teaching me before moving from one step to the next one. I would recommend her to anyone who wishes to learn digital painting. :)

I am very glad that we found Frances to tutor my daughter, who is a high functioning autistic child, for painting and drawing. My daughter loves to draw and tends to use it to compensate her impaired ability of communication. But like other children on the spectrum, she has limited attention span, repetitive behaviors and narrow interests in terms of topics of drawings. After a few months of weekly lessons with Frances, my daughter was able to do easel painting and produced varies forms of artwork.
