About Diane

Hello!

I am an entrepreneur, artist, designer. I am also a part time instructor at the Academy of Art San Francisco and teach classes in Social Media Marketing and Branding in both the undergrad and graduate program.

I have worked for different corporate companies for the last 10 years freelancing for graphic design, web design, and marketing, and social media. I am great with project planning and management, I am also very knowledgeable in setting up a simple WordPress site with minimal coding. Now I have my own business helping small business clients with web design + social media + marketing strategy.

Besides that I have a Master's in Fine art at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, emphasis on Visual Development for Animation. Which is essentially concept art. I draw characters, storyboard, and also paint backgrounds and environment, traditionally and digitally in Photoshop.

I have been using Adobe Creative Suite for over 10 years now and I would like to contribute my knowledge in helping someone mastering these same concepts and learning. I have tutored previously younger students and would like to help someone become very adept with these programs or if they are interested in learning how to draw and master these same skills. I am a very strict, structured, and very disciplined artist - I believe this is what separates those that are successful and those who are not serious about their craft. I have over 10 years of drawing experience and have learned to be successful at what I do by being consistent in mastering my craft.

I will teach you the same methods in working hard and being the best that you can be! I am very creative and open to new ideas, but I am also strict in following guidelines and believe that there is no shortcut to hard work. Not limited to just helping students with design and drawing, I also love to work with small business owners who need help with learning Adobe software. If you are ready and serious about what you do, in whatever way I can help, I would be excited to work with you!

I'm open to tutoring online but need a day in advance to book the session! Thanks!!
