I am an artist that has over 20 years of art experience in fine art and digital art. My main focus as an artist is with drawing organic beings from nature and fantasy. My expertise lie in drawing mythical creatures as well as humans, plants, and animals. I can teach character design with a range of cartoon styles to more realistic styles.
In regards to digital art, I am quite knowledgeable in Photoshop and have been working with it for over 15 years and many unique skills that enhance the ability to use these programs.
I am also quite experienced with video editing and animation using adobe premiere, after effects, and Krita.

My favorite part with teaching is when the student can utilize what they learned and do their own take on the subject matter.

Adobe Photoshop - Photo editing and drawing applications.
Adobe After Effects: Using Special effects and learning the basics of the program as well as editing it in with Adobe Premiere.

Extremely Talented

Kayla is a very talented artist with many skills and tips to help students. She’s funny, patient, and gives cons AND pros of drawings. She is a very good critic and happy to help. Will definitely be attending more classes in the future.

Kayla is an AMAZING TUTOR!

Kayla has been a fabulous tutor for my 12-year-old who would like to learn the Adobe suite of products. Kayla has been so patient working through each step and offering suggestions. My daughter was very apprehensive in having a "class" but now asks me for lessons! It has been a very educational and fun experience for her and she is excited to learn more. I cannot thank Kayla enough!

Thoughtful and helpful feedback

Kayla taught me how to look at lighting in my piece and how to shade for faces. She worked with me directly on a piece and gave me helpful advice for everything I wanted to know. Would highly recommend her as a tutor.
