About Cat

I am an artist with a background focused in Textile Design. I have worked in the Fashion and Home design industries as a Textile Designer for the past 6 years. I have an extensive knowledge of color theory, painting, drawing, Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe Illustrator. In addition to my professional experience, I have a fine arts training for figure drawing in graphite pencil and oil colors. I consistently draw and paint in my own free time to further improve my own knowledge and abilities.

My teaching experience consists of a color theory class, which I have taught for this past two years. I am a patient teacher and enjoy spending one on one time with my students. My goal is to be certain my students have a solid understanding of the foundations of color and design principles. With these tools, they are better able to tackle any design or artistic situation that they should encounter.

I enjoy working with artists and designers of all ages, levels, and backgrounds. I hope to meet you and share my knowledge with you!

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 received a BFA in Textile Design from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco in May 2009. Since then, I have worked with multiple companies in New York, in the are of fashion and home fashions, as a textile designers. With each position, I would hand draw artwork to be used as a textile print in their product.

Additionally, I have continued my drawing studies with continuing education courses at the New York Academy of Art. There I take drawing courses focused on figure drawing. The classes are centered on drawing from a live model. We discuss using different medias and the best approaches for drawing and rendering a 3-D form.

Painting

For the past 4 years I have continued my artistic training through many courses at top art schools in Manhattan. Including, SVA, New York Academy of Art, New York Studio School, and The Art Students League.

Classes include, Figure Drawing, Still Life Painting, Landscape Painting, and Portrait Painting. Outside of these courses I continue a personal art practice in my studio. I paint a variety of subjects (objects, the figure, landscapes) through direct observation.

I work with oil colors. My work has an emphasis on color, which is achieved through careful color mixing and color matching.
