Hello! My name is Emily, I am a professional animator with 5 years of experience in the animation industry. I currently work as the Lead Animator at Yes! Our Kids Can and work regularly with animation and illustration interns. We take in not only experienced artists who wish to grow but also newer artists still learning animation and illustration. I have also worked previously at studios as a 2D and 3D animator. I went to California College of the Arts and then transferred to Savannah College of Art and Design where I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Animation.
I love tutoring artists because they share my passion for animation and I want to give them the tools to make it in this industry.

-Courses taken included anatomy and figure drawing
-Proficient in Maya and Toon Boom
-Studied under Pixar and Disney artists

This industry is vibrant, competitive and fun, connections and a great portfolio are a first step to getting into it. Whether it’s freelance or a studio job you’re looking for, I can help you find and prepare for it.

Great with our 7-year-old!

Emily did an amazing job connecting without son and getting him excited about drawing techniques. He was really excited after the lesson to show us what he had learned.

Super nice and easy to talk to!

Emily was really easy to talk to and gave me good direction on what I need to improve on. She speaks like she has a lot of experience and I look forward to continuing my lessons with her!

Awesome tutor for my daughter

Emily is a fantastic tutor for my 9 year old daughter who wants to learn animation. We've had three sessions so far, and each time my daughter is excited to learn and can't wait for the next session. I would highly recommend Emily for tutoring animation.

very nice and effecient

Emily taught me the basics oof the program as well as key tips to remember when using maya. i learned with several characters how to create emotions using a character without facial features, such as a sack of flour.

JP, 4 lessons with Emily

Knowledgeable in her field

My son is enjoying his art sessions with Emily. She is guiding him with some basic tools to help improve his drawing skills. They have had two sessions so far, and it is going well.

My daughter loved her lesson with Emily!

My daughter reports that Emily was great about following my daughter's interests, and that she went slowly so it was easy for her to follow along. My daughter was so excited for another lesson!

Perfect Choice

So far I have had Emily as a tutor for 2d animation. I have started out from drawing near stick figures to already drawing whole scenes, body figures, and more. Emily is definitely a top tier animator on Wyzant and should be considered to be your tutor. She could go a teeny bit fast paced but if you tell her to slow down (or speed up), she will gladly do so. She explains each step of what you both are drawing. She reviews what you have drawn with her and provides feedback on how it's like and what could be improved. She has even gotten me to draw hand poses alright, and hand poses are pretty hard to draw.
