About Cheryl

Hello Art Students,

For many years in all kinds of industries I have drawn artwork for storyboards, courtroom illustrations for the Chicago Tribune and for CBS.
Before moving to Chicago I worked for Hallmark in Kansas City designing wrapping papers, sculpting Christmas ornaments and gift items.
While working at Hallmark I was given the opportunity to work at Disney studios in California to learn how to render Disney characters for
products licensed to Hallmark.

It has long been my passion to pass on the lessons I have learned and to nurture the art talent in students. With the guidance from
a personal tutor an art students growth potential is boundless. It is important that you see that the teacher be qualified not just by
which degree they hold but whether they themselves have the talent to draw and teach.

I look forward to hearing from you and learning how I can help you grow your art skills.

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.

Drawing

I am a graduate of the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale with an Associates Degree and was immediately hired by Hallmark Cards in Kansas City to design for them. After moving to Chicago years later I worked for several major ad agencies as in-house artist and designer before starting my freelance career. Presently, I am still working for all the top tier agencies on TV storyboards, print ads and other collateral. Also during my time here in Chicago I have been on call at various news organizations to draw the courtroom artwork that is printed and televised.

Film

I have had 20+ years of working with producers creating storyboards for their film projects. I have drawn what are commonly referred to as shooting boards for the purpose of estimating costs and creating set designs. I have worked for production teams and photographers to make presentations of the creative material.

Graphic Design

I performed the services of an Art Director for Foote Cone and Belding working on the SC Johnson family of products. I was responsible for creating entire campaigns of visual graphic designs. I also worked with packaging companies to create designs for their customers.

Painting

I have the ability to teach the techniques I have demonstrated and can work in virtually any style of art when required.
