About Ashley

I am an artist living in Brooklyn, NY. I have a BFA in Industrial Design and specialize in tutoring Adobe: Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, and hands on modeling processes. Hands on modeling processes include beginner’s model making and mold making. A creative dabbler at heart, I am open to helping students explore new making and building techniques.

In addition to Art and Design training, I help students familiarize themselves and become proficient with current technology. I aid students in setting up and familiarizing themselves with their computers, smart devices, iPhones, iPads, the internet, and how to use websites such as Squarespace.

I have three years of professional experience in creating detailed visual research, ideation presentations, ad proposals under the supervision of established designers and artists. I have taken many design classes during my studies at Parsons The New School for Design and use the Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator on a daily basis in my own art practice. I currently work as freelance artist, primarily helping artist develop digital and print-ready content for galleries and trade shows.

If my skills are of any interest to you, please feel free to contact me or write me with any questions. Thanks! :-)

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Adobe Illustrator

I have over 4 years of experience in Adobe Illustrator. I am an artist that frequently uses this program either for professional or personal work; creating graphics for posters/presentations or converting illustrations into vectors for fabrication/laser cutting. I have taken several design classes during my undergrad and feel confident sharing the skills with my students.

Adobe InDesign

I have used Adobe InDesign to organize and format information for presentations, posters, and books. I believe it is a great tool that is very intuitive that allows a user to customize data, photographs, and text in endless ways. I have used InDesign throughout my college education as it is a necessary tools for designers and artist. I have general project outlines and handouts for my students but am also open to tutoring students on specific projects. I like to give the student the flexibility to be creative or work on what interests them while I teach.

Adobe Photoshop

I have over eight years of experience in Adobe Photoshop. I started using Photoshop with my photography and continued using it during my BFA studies in Industrial Design. I primarily use Photoshop for digital collages, editing photos, and applying color to scans and drawings. I am also familiar with using Camera Raw.

AutoCAD

I have over 4 years of experience in 2D AutoCAD. I have experience drawing dimensioned technical drawings for objects and furniture. I have also used AutoCAD to create floor plans and files for computer aided design.

Macintosh

I have been using a Macintosh computer for 6 + years. I am a Macintosh user primarily because the programs I use daily are most compatible with a Mac computer. That being said, I am confident in navigating and organizing (folders, files, text, photos, video, etc) on this machine. I am also familiar with most Mac programs including GarageBand, Pages, iTunes etc.

Ashley provided me with an excellent learning experience

We started out by discussing what is involved with the project I am working on. There is a DropBox file with a manuscript and a selection of high quality visual images that have been borrowed from important sources that must be used to their best advantage. We created the needed document, which will be a 350+ page book and incorporated the text efficiently into InDesign. Because of her helpful tea
