Hello, I am a professional artist and certified educator. I offer a broad range of skills and experiences that I bring to students learning fine arts, digital/graphic arts (including Adobe Creative Suite software), and other subjects. My professional experience includes over twenty-five years as an illustrator and graphic designer in educational product development and publishing. I worked for one year as a long term art sub in Newtown, CT and two years as a yearbook advisor at Canterbury School in New Milford, CT, preparing curriculum and instruction for high school students in the fundamentals of 2D and 3D design. My work as a freelance artist has included creating murals for private homes and fine art pieces. These professional experiences have taught me how to multitask and pay close attention to details.

My lessons are grounded in the National Core Arts Standards and professional industry standards. I am looking forward to utilizing my professional experience, education, training and creative energy to guide and support flourishing artists.

I have used Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Acrobat, Google Slides and Microsoft Power Point in my professional work as an artist and educator. In industry, I have worked with advertising agencies, publishing houses, privately owned companies and personal clients. While working for advertising agencies I worked on crafting and designing company branding identities and ad campaigns. The publishing houses ranged from books to magazines like Grolier/Scholastic and Taunton Press. I worked on layout design, photoshoots, and developed marketing licensed products for Disney, Barbie and Dr. Seuss. I also worked as a product developer for a curriculum product company.

In my experience teaching many of my students I worked with would tell you, I love working one-to-one with students. I will be happy to help support you at any stage of your creating process while allowing you to see your creative concept come to life.
