About Emily

I've been working professionally as an artist since 2009, making graphics and illustrations for clients and having worked for Disney Research for just over a year. I'm currently a freelance artist, but I'd also love to contribute to the art education community by inspiring and instructing anyone who wants to learn.

Art doesn't have to be just about drawing or painting. It can be seen as a world of expression, regardless of medium. Art can be as simple as drawing from observation, or as intricate as creating an experience for an audience that can be found in places such as the Museum of Modern Art. Making and experiencing art is therapeutic and philosophical. It brings out the inner expression of the maker and often provokes thought. I believe I can help students hone their skills in the visual arts, with a focus on drawing and painting.

I specialize in drawing/illustration, digital painting, and 2D animation, mostly in the context of video games (with 2D graphics). I can also give advice in the designing of video games as well as marketing them.

My hope and mission is to successfully distribute my knowledge, skills and experience to anyone who wants to acquire them. Thank you for your interest!

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.

Drawing

I've been drawing since I was about 4 years old. I was able to sharpen my skills enough to accepted into the Art School at Carnegie Mellon University, and graduated with a Bachelor's in Fine Arts.

I worked for Disney Research as an artist intern for a year and a half, and since then have been freelancing as an artist for many different clients.

My education included lots of discussion, reflection and thoughts on how to approach our work; how we see it, how we produce it and how we present it.

Graphic Design

I mostly do graphic design in the context of video games. I've helped to create graphics for video games at Disney Research, and as a freelance artist. I create user interface designs, consisting of elements such as buttons, mouse cursors, window frames and app icons. I've also created logos for video games as well as company logos.

I've made graphics for dozens of games in my career as a professional artist. Please feel free to request portfolio samples from me.

Painting

I've been digitally painting since I was about 11-12 years old. My best works that got me into the Art School at Carnegie Mellon University, as well as Disney Research, consisted of digital paintings.

I've been providing concept art and illustrations professionally since 2009. Most of the time these have been in the context of developing video games as well as promoting them.
