About Jetty

Hello I am a digital artist with experience in drawing, painting, digital coloring, printmaking, jewelry, crafts, game design and web development. I also minored in Japanese and can provide basic tutoring to start to learn this GREAT language. I have taken several years of science and math coursework including Chemistry and Physics. I have experience in Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Cinema 4D and 3D Studio Max.

I also spent a year tutoring English as a second language for Japanese exchange students, as well as tutoring Intro to Japanese after I graduated. My last semester of graduate school, I was the teaching assistant for the 3D modeling and animation course at Goucher College. I possess a Substitute teaching certificate in Illinois and have experience within the special education department. I have a wide array of interests and skills that I would love to impart on eager students!

I have taken four and a half years of formal university honors level Japanese. Plus, I studied abroad for a semester at Temple University in Tokyo, Japan where I studied Japanese art, culture, and language. I have self studied Japanese for five years and have been to Japan three times with a trip planned for next year as well. I lived in the International House with four Japanese roommates so I am experienced in tutoring both international students as well as students interested in international studies.

The past year has been spent working on my thesis capstone project which was all the elements of an Indie Action Adventure Game. My capstone project which was comprised of six fully rendered environments, two fully rigged 3D characters, the basis for three 2D mini games, plus all graphic design elements was by far the most fulfilling project to which I have ever been a part. Since this is an independent project, I composed all the music through Ableton Live, created all the animations through Cinema 4D, designed all characters and in game graphics through Illustrator and composited all the videos thought After Effects/Premier/Media Encoder. The capstone’s end goal was to have all the ground work for a future action adventure game and this goal was completed and I was awarded my master’s degree based upon the defense of my work.

With a bachelor’s of art in fine art I have taken coursework in photography, drawing, painting, sculpting, jewelry, printmaking (lithography and Intaglio) and software design. With a master’s degree in Digital Arts I have taken coursework in digital photography, 3D animation, motion graphics, digital media programming, interactivity, and audio techniques. I have also run my own art studio for seven years and have skills in all forms of crafting arts from cosplay to upcycling. I have also taken coursework in all areas of art history including Modern Art and World arts.

If you would like to learn any of these skills from a fun, energetic, skilled artist, please contact me to learn more or schedule a lesson.

I graduated from Goucher College with a master's degree in Digital art with a thesis focused in game design and elements. I have taken courses in digital media programming, interactivity, and motion graphics. I also have several master level courses in 3D modeling and animation.
