Hello, my name is Jacob and I've been an artist my whole life! Starting with ninja turtles and other various cartoons until I fell in love with realism. I really started to blossom in my sophomore year of High School and knew that this was the thing I wanted to do. After High School I attended Miami International University of Art and Design. I graduated with honors and also received the outstanding achievement award for my class. After graduation from Miami I attended the University of Hawaii at Manoa where I had a focus in drawing and painting and was the recipient of a graduate assistantship. This allowed me to attend school in exchange for teaching 2 sections of introduction to drawing. Teaching is a challenge but I get such a great reward from seeing my students progression and growth over time.

As far as my teaching methods I strongly believe in a rigid foundation in representational drawing with copious amounts of repetition. I believe it is this foundation that will allow you to break the rules of traditional art if you so choose because it will be on purpose rather than on accident. I love the old masters and try to emulate them the best I can. After all in those days the rank of Master meant that you could draw any form or figure in any position from imagination. No model or landscape required! Once you get these foundational skills then you can work to construct anything you want from imagination and thats when the real fun sets in.

I will be an outstanding tutor because I already have teaching experience at the college level. I wasn't just teaching art majors. I was also teaching computer science majors, fashion designers, literature, people from all different disciplines and all different skill levels. My greatest skill in teaching is getting people to open their eyes and really see how things are and deepen their understanding by reproducing it in art.

If you have any interest in learning how to drawing or paint or expand upon already developing talent, please contact me. I would love to hear from you!
