About Amanda

Having studied visual arts and communication, I have a good understanding of marketing and design, as well as understanding what motivates groups of people. Through my experience in graphic design, as well as nearly three years of professional experience, I have honed in on some very useful skills. I do mostly digital art using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, but I have a good amount of experience in traditional art too, especially using pencil, marker, colored pencils, and acrylic paint.

I've worked as a tutor for a year now, having worked through a company for five of those months. I've tutored high school and college age students in digital and traditional art. Some students needed to start from the beginning with anatomy, color theory, and different tools. Other students have a good grasp of the basics and want a more specific lesson plan. Either way, I've helped them improve their skills and leave happy with the results. That's the greatest part of being a tutor; watching your students improve and feeling pride in the work they do.

I believe that to be a great artist, there are two very important things you must understand; the basics and your own style. You can have a solid grasp of Photoshop; you can wave a paint brush around like Picasso; you can understand color theory front and back; if you don't understand your own style, you will not feel confident in your own art.

If you're interested in improving your skills or want to dive in and begin learning about art, contact me! I'm excited to hear from you!
