About Jason

A lifelong lover of art and art history, I have always been a creative person from traditional painting and drawing to writing music, building models from scratch and even baking. I carry this love and enthusiasm for art and creativity into my studio and daily practices. I love to share with others about art, art history and anything related and pass on some of that joy to someone else.

I was born in Michigan and grew up in New Jersey. During my young adult years I lived in several other places including Virginia and Indiana, before settling in southern California in the late 1990s. I loved experiencing the cultures of different geographic areas and that has broadened my outlook on life and kept my mind open to new things, something which is very valuable to teaching and creativity. As well as being a visual artist, I have also had a successful career as a typeface (font) designer. That has been a deeply rewarding path as well!

I graduated cum laude from Kean University in 1997 with a BFA in Illustration. I have a solid foundation of art and design principles as well as expert knowledge on art materials and their use, with a heavy focus on oil painting and pastels. I also have skills in graphic art and design, typography and art history. My years as font designer have given me excellent knowledge of vector drawing tools in digital applications.

If you need tutoring or lessons in any of the following: basic painting and drawing skills, oil painting, pastel painting, art history, use of art supplies, vector illustration, color theory, studio skills, typography or font design, please don't hesitate to contact me.

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.

Astronomy

I have always loved and been fascinated by Astronomy. I took a number of classes in college on the subject and continue to learn and read about it whenever I can. I feel I would be an excellent tutor for someone needing assistance with Astronomy up to a college freshman level.

Drawing

I studied drawing during my years in the Visual Arts program at Kean University from 1993 to 1997. I have continued to draw since, as part of my design and art career. Both sketching and more finished drawings are part of my studio practices and occasionally design proposals for clients.

Graphic Design

I studied graphic design and illustration during my years in the Visual Arts program at Kean University. Since graduating, I have worked both as an employee and in my own freelance business as a graphic designer, typeface designer and digital vector artist.

Painting

I studied painting for two years as part of the Visual Arts program at Kean University. I continue to maintain a working studio and paint almost daily. I have sold paintings online, maintain an art blog and newsletter through my website and have shown my work for the past three years in the Visual Arts gallery at the Orange County Fair. Accepted submissions to the Fair are by jury only.

Great teaching

Jason is a great teacher, he was very helpful when it comes to complete my first oil painting. He showed me several tips of oil painting which opened up my mind. Definitely recommended.
