About Helen

I have been teaching at Parsons School of Design, since 2000, and have been working as a fashion designer and illustrator since 1985, after graduating from Parsons with BFA in fashion design.

My focus is to help you draw or design anything faster, more effectively, and with joy. If you need assistance in preparing your portfolio for a college or job interview, or simply would like to improve your drawing skills, I am eager to help.

Looking forward to working with you in the near future.

Thanks for reading.

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 have been teaching drawing at Parsons School of Design since 2000 and have been working as a designer and artist since 1985.

Painting

I started using gouache, watercolor, inks, and pastels even before studying in Parsons School of Design (1981-1985). I am still using all of that media now for my general illustration, fashion illustration, and fine art. I have exhibited my portraits in the Atlantic Gallery in Chelsea, NYC.
