About John

I am an artist and graphic designer. I have taught life drawing and watercolor as a Graduate Teaching Fellow, and have run several drawing classes out of my home. For several years I ran the color department at a wallcoverings manufacturer, matching and approving color for printing wallcoverings. Although this is a departure from the usual course of a person trained in the arts, it gave me insight into using artistic skills in a business where a timely work schedule and cost containment are important. This has been useful to me ever since.

I became fascinated with computers and went into the graphic design business. For several years I worked for two different printing companies, working on catalogs, periodicals and newspapers. All through this time I ran a graphic design business on the side, which is now my source of employment. I am experienced in Quark Express, InDesign, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Dreamweaver for web design. I work in the Macintosh environment, but I can teach the programs above for Windows as well.
