About Katherine


Bio

I have experience as an advertising agency and corporate art director and as a college professor and tutor. I have tutored elementary students as well as college students and professional adults. Whatever age or point in development you are, if you have a real desire to learn we will begin the lessons at your level and I will guide you to success.

I have experience as an advertising agency and corporate art director and as a college professor and tutor. I have tutored elementary students as well as college students and professional adults. Whatever age or point in development you are, if you have a real desire to learn we will begin the lessons at your level and I will guide you to success.

I do more tutoring now than art direction, and I've found I really enjoy when my students get what I'm teaching them. Not all of my students are artists or designers. I've enjoyed teaching students with a wide variety of backgrounds and goals. Tell me a little about yourself and your goals and I will teach you what you need to know about art, drawing, design and Adobe Creative Suite.

I have used Adobe Illustrator to create illustrations, logos, packaging designs and illustrations for a variety of companies. I've tutored the subject to college students with graphic design majors, architecture majors, business majors and to a professional calligrapher and graphic designer.

I've been an artist since I can remember. I studied art, graphic design and art direction for eight years of college, four at Kent State University in Ohio and four more at the Art Center College of Design in California. I took courses in web development at UCLA. I've kept many a sketchbook and used Adobe Photoshop, Animation, Graphic Design and Drawing for a lot of professional projects. I've also tutored students in drawing and all of these applications.

I look forward to hearing from you. Please let me know if you have questions and I will do my best to answer them. I usually tutor students online and at my studio location, the Manhattan Beach, CA library. They have private rooms with wifi and a pleasant view. I've also met students in local coffee shops. Tell me about yourself and your schedule and we can work out a time that works for both of us. I hope you will choose me as your tutor.
