About Sidney

Hello!

I am a design professional currently working in the design field. I have a passion for collaboration and for helping people learn to unlock their creativity. I worked as a resident assistant in college where I was the RA for the "Artist Colony". While doing that, I lead the art students in many fun crafts and projects. I helped the students create wall murals to adorn our residence hall.

As your tutor, you can expect exciting project prompts, encouragement, and top quality knowledge from a professional designer. I look forward to sharing what I know.

I am fluent in Adobe Photoshop CC, Indesign CC, Illustrator CC, and Lightroom CC.
I studied Graphic design for 3.5 years in college and currently, work for NewStream Studios and Re/Max Heritage as Art Director. I also do freelance design on the side.
I studied traditional art for years before my design education began, so fine art is in my roots. I've placed in many western art competitions in High School. Now I mostly paint and draw as a way to get my creativity flowing and for personal passion projects.

If you are a student looking to go into the art world I can help you create and perfect a portfolio to get into your choice college. I can help you create a portfolio for getting freelance work and give you the creative direction and prompts that you need to develop a well-rounded portfolio.

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 studying drawing since I was in elementary school. In my professional education I have completed college prep classes, art competitions, won admittance to The Western Art Academy and studied in college at VCUarts. I use drawing on a daily basis as a key to developing more well thought out designs. I have not taught drawing professionally, but I will mimic the lessons that I learned from. I will draw from my experience to communicate the best way with each individual student.

Graphic Design

I have received my MFA in Graphic Design from VCUarts where I graduated with honors. I currently work as a designer for New Stream Studios ( remote studio) and Re/Max Heritage ( physical location). I also have a freelance business that is doing well. I know everything that you need to know to be a designer and my education has prepared me to help others through effective and creative problem solving.

Marketing

I have had 2 internships that involve marketing. I am also the Marketing Director at Re/Max heritage and a large part of my job is running and maintaining our social media and managing our mail out post card campaigns.

Microsoft Outlook

I gave a lecture on how to use Outlook during my internship at SI Group summer 2012. I've been using it at each of my jobs and internships since then.

Painting

I studied Oil, Arcylic, and Water Color painting in High School and college art classes. I paint using acrylic on a weekly basis. Because of my familiarity with the mediums and the methods used to get different results I feel like my mastery of the mediums will translate well into teaching lessons.

Track & Field

I ran in Cross country and Track from 7th grade till high school graduation. I've trained for and run 2 marathons. One my senior year of HS and one my 2nd year in college.
