About Troy

I have a BFA, ( Bachelor of Fine Arts ) degree from the Savannah College of Art and Design. I have been a practicing Artist and Art teacher for approximately 20 years. I have had my own portrait studio here in America, and for roughly the past 10 years I have been teaching Art in Asia, with one year in Thailand but the majority in China. I have taught in many Chinese cities including: Xiangtan, Changsha, Chongqing, Wusan and the last 4 years in Shanghai. My last position before relocating back the us was as the Art teacher / Art Director for the Cambridge International University in Shanghai, Pudong province. In this position I essentially created the Art department, where there was none prior. I was responsible for the entire curriculum, budget, supplies and teaching all classes. I taught all basic Art classes, including Oil/Acrylic painting, drawing, ceramics, 3D mixed media, etc. as well as a digital Art club.

I have a great reputation for expert knowledge of subject material, but just as importantly I am well known for being very kind, compassionate, patient and encouraging to all students. I have taught Artists from 5 to 50, and have been successful in my career as an educator because I know that when it comes to Art, often the process is much more fulfilling then the final piece.
Having relocated to Mass., I have recently passed my MTEL licensure exams, ( Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure ) for the K-12 grades and expect to begin teaching at a Mass. public school for the beginning of the next school year.

In addition to being well versed and proficient with all the basic visual Arts, I have also worked for many years as both an Illustrator and Graphic Designer, with expert user level knowledge in not only most Adobe programs, including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, etc., but also in programs such as Corel Painter, SketchUp pro, Sketchbook pro, Art Rage, and some 3D programs such as Mia and Zbrush.
In addition to practical knowledge, I was lucky to have attended one of the best Art Schools in America, ( SCAD ) and as such was exposed to and required to learn several years of intensive Art history, from the cave paintings in Lascaux to Italian renaissance, the Dutch renaissance, to Honre Daumier to Jackson Pollack and most in between. As a matter of fact, we were not allowed to begin classes in our major until we had a substantial, solid Art history foundation to build upon.

Having either taught or been working in one way or another most of my life in the Art field I believe that I am uniquely qualified to help any individual with most any Art issues. Whether a novice or the next great master in the making, I am most happy and willing to work with you, and am currently able to work around most schedules.
I have a proven track record of success because I love what I do, I love my students, and I give 100% to each and every student, each and every lesson. Please feel free to contact me any time at your c

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 have a Bachelor of Fine Art from The Savannah College of Art and Design.
I have been drawing seriously since about high school, approximately 1999.
I actually exempted drawing classes 1,2 and 3 by submitting several drawing projects to the school for consideration.

Painting

I have a Bachelor of Fine Art from The Savannah College of Art and Design.

My BFA was for painting. My specialty is oil painting, with a concentration on both Italian and Dutch renaissance. I have been painting seriously for most of my life, and all of my adult life.
