BFA Savannah College of Art and Design (Fashion)
I am from Chapel Hill, NC. There are more math teachers in my extended family than any other profession, though my parents were craftspeople. As a child, I spent my days at their store, The Chapel Hill Leather Shop, where I watched them make hundreds of belts, purses and custom sandals. Later on their business turned to jewelry making, much to the delight of my sister and I. I continued to expand my arts and crafts background as a young adult, earning my Bachelors of Fine Art from the Savannah College of Art and Design. My major was fashion design but the school put a strong emphasis on computer programs such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator as well having a broad Art and Art History base of knowledge. Courses included 2D design, 3D design, color theory, drawing, life drawing and fashion illustration. Since college I have managed a clothing store for 5 years, lived off-the-grid on a sailboat for 3 years, raised a little girl for six years, and continued to sew, sketch and design throughout.
I have always enjoyed doing arts and crafts projects with students; from spray paint stencilling with kids after school when I worked for the Boys and Girls Club in Key West, to motor-skills development projects with my daughter and her classmates in her pre-k class where I volunteered many times. I've carved a Buddah from Aerated concrete block, welded, soldered, done stained glass, tie-dyed, screen printed, made wire art, paper mâché, moccasins, collages, still lifes, mural art, etc, etc.

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.
