About Jeff

I have been involved in the art world my entire life. My father was a successful wildlife artist. Even when I was a child, he held my critiques in high regard. I recognize the importance of being honest, forward, and specific when it comes to giving praise and criticism alike.

I earned my BA from Auburn University with a concentration in painting. Every student is expected to be objectively critical of all art, in all contexts. When teaching or expressing an opinion, it's very important not to use words like "good" or "bad" but instead refer to what is successful and what is unsuccessful in moving the message of the art/design forward.

I've tutored myself in digital media for more than a decade. The process has involved obtaining all kinds of information from many different sources. In order to teach myself new skills, I almost always have to break the lessons down into simple steps/ideas. These simple elements can then be used for a concrete knowledge of a more complex process. I believe anything can be taught/learned by breaking lessons down into terms the student can understand and relate to.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 have a BA from Auburn University. I've studied Photoshop CS4, CS5, CS6, and CC thoroughly. I was a graphic designer for almost two years.

Drawing

I have been drawing my entire life. In elementary school, I won the blue ribbon in a statewide junior wildlife art contest. In middle school, high school and community college, I consistently took art and drawing classes.

In 2012, I earned my BA with a concentration in painting from Auburn University. And today, I devote most of my time to graphic art but I continue to draw and paint.

Graphic Design

I have educated myself thoroughly on many programs in the Adobe creative suite. I have worked as a graphic designer at Larry Signs for nearly 2 years. I have a BA from Auburn. My concentration was in painting, but much of the more important elements to design are universal in the art world as well.

Video Production

I've studied and have experience with Adobe Premiere Pro, as well as many other lesser video editing/encoding programs. I have experience with assembling/installing and maintaining my own home theater as well as other peoples, which has given me a expert knowledge of an array of video/audio files types. However, my knowledge of audio/video recording equipment is quite narrow.
