I have been creating art for 17 years and enjoy teaching my knowledge to others. I enjoy showing people that anyone can be creative and creativity is accessible to everyone. I have learned many art techniques and have experience in many art mediums. Pencil, watercolor, acrylic, markers, Adobe Illustrator and other various mediums are my strong suit. I also have over 10 years of various writing experience and many skills to share to help others create exceptional papers.

My instructional style is one on one while pushing the student's creativity and imagination. I am passionate about teaching and helping my student grow in their talents and skills. I enjoy receiving questions about art topics and am patient in teaching art in general.

I have a knack for supporting younger students in their journey in learning the basics of art and core subjects. Giving support while letting the student discover the subject with guidance is key to mastering the subject while creating greater curiosity for the subject too.

I have been drawing professionally since the age of 16 by doing commissions, conventions and creating general art for clients. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration and graduated with a 3.95 GPA. I have illustrated a children's book, worked for an online social network called Kin Valley LLC, currently work for a studio on various cartoon shows for FX and Fox, and still actively create images of clients on a freelance basis.

Please contact me if you feel I am the right fit for your tutoring needs. I am able to meet one on one or online through WyzAnt to discuss tutoring needs and what the student would like to achieve from the lessons.

Amazing teacher

Latasha was an amazing teacher. We vibe instantly she was authentic and genuine. I knew nothing and she didn’t make me feel bad or dumb. I asked a million questions and asked some questions three or four times and she was cool. I learned a lot and she set up my computer screen and she taught me short cuts. I am very happy with my new tutor. If you need help with illustrator or photoshop book Latasha.

Latasha Goes Above and Beyond!

Latasha is a wonderful art teacher! She is compassionate, patient, friendly and fun. She is teaching my daughter new skills, but she is also "drawing out" and honing the creativity that is innate inside of her. She honors and enhances my daughter's natural gifts. She is a real blessing!!
