University of Central Florida (Fine art)
Shout out to all the art kids out there! And all the parents helping their children on the journey.
My first piece was accepted for an art show when I was in the second grade, so making art has been engrained in me from a very young age. I continued learning and expressing myself with art through high school and college, eventually earning a Bachelor's Degree of Fine Arts. Luckily I attended a University that required diverse course studies, so I became educated in design, drawing, painting, ceramics, printmaking, graphic design, photography, art theory and art history.
I feel like my love for art is what makes me a great teacher, no matter your level of knowledge. Whether you are 5 and just starting to understand shape and color, or have some understanding of photography and want to take it to the next level, I want to help you on your journey. I believe that the fundamentals of art can be taught to anyone with the drive and passion to learn. Starting off with the basics and building technique from there. I have a wide variety of skills in my artist portfolio, and have been working professionally as an artist for years. I am excited to get creative together and help others realize their artistic abilities!! Shout out to all the art kids out there! And all the parents helping their children on the journey.

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 is a core subject to all artists. I have take college level courses in drawing. And using core elements of design, such as perspective, light, and value, I am able to help expand ones knowledge of the medium. Using different media charcoal versus graphite, pen and ink, and line weight are all core values to help a student become better in drawing.
Using illustrator and photoshop is essential in graphic design, both of which I'm am approved for. I have also taken classes in digital photography and graphic design at a college level. I have great knowledge of using these programs to augment photos and illustrations to result in a computer rendered image. Also understanding design theory, color theory, space shape, and how all these elements together make a pleasing image.
All of the graphic design and photography programs I run on Macintosh. I have been using apple computers exclusively for over 10 years, and have a great understanding of how the programs and operating system work. I believe the user friendliness of macs are easily explainable especially because I spend hours using my Mac for work daily. I feel like my knowledge and patience is what makes me a great teacher, especially in an area I have passion for.
I have taken painting courses at a college level, and have a great knowledge of how the elements of art, shape, form, line, value and color make successful images. I use watercolor and acrylic paint in my own artwork, which is my primary form of art currently.
