About Elisabeth

Art is not a mirror with which to reflect the world, but a hammer with which to shape it. - Vladimir Mayakowsky

This wonderfully strong statement is the foundation for my personal art making and my teaching
philosophy.
Yet every first step we make in becoming an artist is about mirroring ourselves and our surroundings. By paying attention to ourselves first, we learn to observe and to consciously reflect, examine and understand who we are and what we want to share with the world from an artistic perspective.
I hold a Master of Science in Communications Design with emphasis on photography and graphic design and a Master of Fine Arts in Studio Art with emphasis on photography and sculpture.
The last year I have been working with the Meridian Interns program, where I have guided youth in book making, drawing and painting. I have a conceptual approach to my personal work and I use different media such as video, photography and sculpture. Through my experience as an artist and designer I can teach you the basics in art and design and help you improving your artistic voice.
If you are planning to apply for a degree in design or art I will guide you through the process of creating a portfolio and gaining knowledge in your field of interest. This can be anything from graphic design to painting and photography. If you want to learn Adobe Creative Suite and/or how to draw or use a camera, I am here to assist you!

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 Illustrator

I can help with Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign

Adobe InDesign

My experience with Adobe InDesign dates back to 2000 when I started to study design. I use this program to make books as well as write and design documents such as CV, Cover letter and portfolios. As all programs in Adobe Suite the first step is teaching students about the layout and the different functions of the palette tools. Working with layers, setting up a layout and considering the design are the next steps upon which one gains an in depth experience with the program. I hold a Master of Science in Communications Design and a Master of Arts in Studio Art

Adobe Photoshop

I studied communications design with emphasis on photo design. I am well trained in Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. :)

Drawing

I have started studying drawing at the age of 20. I took private lessons from artists as well as classes at the Universities where I studied. I prefer using charcoal and graphite or mixed media. My teaching approach is first introducing the student to different media and then going in depth on specifics like motifs, light and shadow. I hold a Master of Science in Communications Design and a Master of Arts in Studio Art

Photography

I bought my first camera at the age of 16 and have since then taken images. I hold a Master of Science in Communications Design and a Master of Arts in Studio Art with emphasis on photography. I have a well trained eye and an extended knowledge of different cameras, lighting techniques and developing procedures. Samples of my work are available upon request.
