Bio

Hello! I am a comic artist and illustrator that works freelance (on a project to project basis rather than for a certain company) from home. I've recently moved to Augusta GA to live with my husband. In searching for a local art community, that amount of people interested in art seems sorta thin. SO on the off chance that its because of a lack of art development resources, I wanted to offer my help in that regard. I'm not perfect at art, but a sounding board for drawing techniques and mediums...

Hello! I am a comic artist and illustrator that works freelance (on a project to project basis rather than for a certain company) from home. I've recently moved to Augusta GA to live with my husband. In searching for a local art community, that amount of people interested in art seems sorta thin. SO on the off chance that its because of a lack of art development resources, I wanted to offer my help in that regard. I'm not perfect at art, but a sounding board for drawing techniques and mediums can help even self-guided learning, and I'd be happy to help anyone on their path towards their art goals.

I have experience tabling at conventions, which a key first step for comic distribution and illustration networking in independent scenes (the most accessible for those of us outside NY, LA, or Portland!). I have experience brainstorming ways to turn art-skills into home-made products for events like conventions or comic fairs, not just for myself but also for others. I also have experience navigating self-publishing print-on-demand services and the ISBN registration process. I've art modeled, and I can guide students through different techniques for life drawing quickly and from different forms of reference, both live and still images. I have techniques for sighting-and-measuring and doing visual studies that I'd love to share. I can also teach coloring and digital inking techniques in photoshop and manga studio (clip studio paint) that, while tailored to comic production, can be applied to concept art, digital painting, and even some elements of graphic design.

If you have questions about how I might help you based on what you're currently studying or trying to learn in 2D art, let me know and we can figure out what I could sit down and help you with. I'm set up with a portable computer which I can use to redline things, and we can meat up at libraries with classrooms or anywhere with a wifi connection and public seating and power outlets.

Took Drawing from observations, Life Drawing, and image composition classes as part of a completed BFA at SCAD. I have helped younger students polish their story ideas and art for an independent comic publishing club at SCAD. I have studied abroad in France to learn French comic priorities and styles. I have been creating and formatting my comic works for small-scale printing and distributing since 2010.
