About Lindsay

My absolute passion in life is sharing my creative skills and knowledge with aspiring artists of all ages! I work in a variety of media, so I have the hands-on experience to impart my "wisdom" with those who are curious to find their artistic voice. I have been fortunate to receive a lifetime of formal training from mentors and professors, which has enriched my formal knowledge of the artistic process. Whether you're building your portfolio for high school or college admissions or just want to try something new, I know we will create great work together.

I have a BFA in Illustration from Savannah College of Art and Design. I am a realistic portrait artist who has been exhibited and featured in publications. I have been classically trained to render and draw forms and proportions accurately. I am skilled in graphite, charcoal, pastel and ink drawing. I also enjoy making quirky, digital collage pieces using sculpting, photography and Photoshop techniques.

As a portrait artist, my drawing style is realistic. Therefore, I believe proportion and measurement for accuracy are an important aspect of a successful work. Additionally, I believe it is important to be tactful and sensitive to color and shading, but I also respect each individual's personal aesthetic and ability. If you are a curious aspiring artist, as I once was (and still am!), I would love to advise you along your path.

Upon request, I can bring my materials to demonstrate technique; but if you are serious about pursuing a particular medium, then you should acquire your own supplies prior to our session (as they can be expensive). If you need suggestions, I can recommend some options to be better prepared. I require a 24-hour cancellation notice, but I'm always willing to reschedule a make-up session. Also, there is an extra fee for mileage outside of my 10-mile travel radius.

My complete portfolio is available online upon request. I look forward to hearing from you!

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 Photoshop

Digital collage artist - I create finished works using collage techniques such as cutting/pasting and combining images, but instead I use Photoshop.

I use Photoshop to create realistic digital portraits using various brushes in PS, and I also create simpler drawings/sketches.

I edit and retouch photos using the clone, stamp and healing controls as well as the adjustment panels.

Drawing

I have a BFA in Illustration from Savannah College of Art and Design. I am a realistic portrait artist who has been exhibited and featured in publications. I have been classically trained to render and draw forms and proportions accurately. I am skilled in graphite, charcoal, pastel and ink drawing.

Painting

I have a BFA in illustration from Savannah College of Art and Design. I have been trained by various painting professors with regard to color mixing, application technique and color theory. I am commissioned by clients for realistic portrait, landscape and still-life paintings. I use acrylic/gouache, oil and watercolor paint depending on the project.
