About Catherine

After being classically trained for four years at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco as an illustrator in the aspects of traditional drawing and painting, I have been working as a freelance illustrator for the past twenty years. I have a knowledge of applied perspective, color theory, drawing and painting. I am familiar with working in different mediums such as pen and ink, pencil, charcoal, chalk pastels and acrylic paints.

I have had the experience of teaching art to children in groups, and look forward to working with students of any age ranging from elementary age children to adult age students.
Drawing and painting skills are taught with demonstrations of the mediums used followed up by a drawing or painting session giving the student an opportunity to apply what they have just learned.

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.

Drawing

I love to draw! From a simple still life to a complex scene, I can show you how to approach your subject and give it life. If you are new to art or need help breaking through to the next level I can help you with simple exercises to accomplish your goals.

Painting

The foundation of any painting is a good understanding of the medium being used. I will teach you how to prepare the surface you will be painting on, and how to care for the materials that will be used. From sketching the composition to blocking in the light to dark values and then building your color choices you will have complete non biased instruction through each step.
