About Joanne

I tutor because I enjoy sharing my passion for art and the creative process. Whether you draw, paint, sculpt, weave, design, make images by collage or with Photoshop or some other way, I can help you stretch your thinking and evolve your art.

I hold a Master of Fine Arts Degree from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, and Tufts as well as a BFA in Design from Otis Parsons. In my training I spent hundreds of hours drawing both from life and my imagination. I am trained in perspective, life /figure drawing and still life. I have taught individuals and group classes in drawing and paintings.

I hold a BFA in visual communications. I owned my own graphic design firm in Los Angeles for five years and subsequently worked for over a decade in marketing and advertising as designer, art director and then creative director. I'm knowledgeable in design, typography and Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator programs.

I have over thirty years of experience with creating and presenting images as well as guiding others in making their work. As a creative director, my role was to find the strengths in artists' work and support them with the tools they needed to improve.

Stuck with what to put in your art portfolio for college applications? Have a list of art projects a school is requesting but not sure how to begin or if your work is what they're looking for? Or, do you want to learn a new technique such as oil painting or collage? Whatever your aspirations, I can be the coach, teacher, and mentor you've been wanting to help you achieve your goals. Contact me to learn more.
