About Lisa

I have a bachelor's degree in Graphic Design from Colorado State University, and I now earn a living as an artist, using both traditional and computer methods. The bachelor of fine arts degree from CSU includes a full, traditional art education, unlike some of the other colleges that only teach the computer skills on art programs.

I am patient, considerate, compassionate, and a great listener. I will help you to pinpoint exactly what is slowing you down and what you are having trouble grasping within the programs and together we will get you to be a more effective user and improve your computer art!

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 InDesign

I have experience using InDesign to create magazine articles, menus, and business resumes for clients as well as having had formal training in InDesign during 5 semesters of graphic design concentration classes. InDesign is an Adobe program, but does have many quirks of its own just as Photoshop and Illustrator do. I have the knowledge to be able to help a student understand the differences between these Adobe programs to be able to utilize each one effectively. I have a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts from Colorado State University.

Drawing

I have been drawing and sketching since age 10 when I began doing portraits of my pets and family members. I have pet portraiture training from the London Art College, as well as a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts from Colorado State University. There, I completed 4 drawing classes with A's and B's earned, as well as the rest of the graphic design curriculum, which requires extensive drawing skills on a daily basis. I can teach students to draw as a skill and not just based on talent alone.

Graphic Design

I am a recent graduate from Colorado State University. I obtained a bachelor of Fine Arts, concentration Graphic Design, and was a nontraditional student. I was older than most of my classmates, and had to learn all of the computer programs from scratch, so I know how it feels to be learning from basically the beginning. By the time I had completed 5 graphic design concentration classes, other students were asking me questions regarding how to do certain functions on the computer, so I know that I succeeded in gaining the knowledge that they had! I know how it feels to be frustrated at not knowing how to do something that many of your peers know already, and I am kind, compassionate, and have a sincere interest in helping others to see that they too can master these techniques and that they do not have to be intimidated by the computer!

Painting

I have been painting since a young age, and have taken workshops from well-know painters, notably those in Alaska, such as Marjorie Blalock and Douglas Girard. Shane Lamb also taught at the studio I attended. I have sold paintings over the past 10 years to collectors on Etsy in my shop Vanagogh, and in college, took 2 semesters of painting from Patrice Sullivan and Erika Osborne, both accomplished professional painters. I can show students different techniques in painting to achieve the end goals their professors and teachers are looking for.
