About Lea

As an art director with over 15 years of experience in all aspects of graphic design, Lea helps clients achieve their communications goals by creating compelling visual experiences for their customers. Lea has worked with financial corporations, emerging businesses, architecture and construction industry publications, technological service providers, and New York City public and private schools.

With a master’s degree in fine arts and years of traveling, Lea brings to her work a flare for style. Lea is a strong group leader and a reliable team member, and she is passionate about her work.

My design history began with a BFA in Fine Arts, followed by my first job in a pre-press bureau. Soon after, I became a graphic designer at a financial ad agency. I then moved on to become senior Art Director at Fry Inc..

This is my specialty, and I love to teach it. Perhaps you're stuck on a project. I can share screens with you so I can see exactly how you're using Photoshop, get you through that problem, and then teach and help you even more.
Having been a graphic designer for over 20 years, I am using my real world experience to teach graphic design and photography. I teach the Adobe Suite of applications, including, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Indesign, Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Lightrooom. I use fun and portfolio-worthy projects like playing card design, poster design and logo design to teach beginning or advanced graphic designers the design process from concepts to finished pieces.

I'm really looking forward to helping you achieve your goals!

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.

Graphic Design

I have been an art director with over 20 years working with all aspects of graphic design. I belive that visual space is the core of strong design. Too much content—whether images, text, or objects—deters viewers. Visual information is great, but never underestimate the power of white space.

Photography

I have my MFA in fine arts, specializing in photography. I orked as a TA for Jim Dow and Nick Nixon. I worked for Henry Horenstein.
