About Mark

I love helping students of all ages!

My expertise are in drawing, painting, and digital art using Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.

I am an artist and an entrepreneur. I have my own small business where I create and sell art pieces that have uplifted others for several years. I am also a caricature artist and have drawn at several private and corporate events. I am passionate about sharing my artistic knowledge, skills, and experience to any student!

I graduated with honors and obtained a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree in Media Arts and Animation from the Art Institute of Seattle. I was trained by Dreamworks and Pixar story artists in drawing for animation.

I am a fun and engaging tutor, customizing my lessons to specifically fit the student's artistic desires and personality. I break down complex art principles into basic concepts very well so that any student at any artistic level can understand and easily apply them in their art.

I'm very excited to work with you! Contact me to schedule a lesson!

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.

Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop is a fundamental program I used during my years in art school and for several years after in various projects within my small business. I can help you use the tools you need in the program to achieve certain creative projects you may have in mind.

Drawing

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Media Arts and Animation from the Art Institute of Seattle, where I took four years of life drawing courses. I also had extensive training in drawing for animation with Dreamworks and Pixar storyboard artists.

I am proficient in drawing in a wide variety of styles: gesture, realistic, cartoon and most especially, caricatures. I can help you learn to draw anything by breaking down the subject into simple shapes and lines, and then moving on to detail work.

Painting

In my small business, I have created and sold several paintings for clients and customers. My pieces have also been showcased at local shows and charities. I am able to break down my painting process so it can be easily understood and applied by any student at any artistic level.

Public Speaking

For several years I have been a speaker at my church and a facilitator during retreats where I held many public presentations for audiences of all ages. I have also taken courses in public speaking and have spoken in front of industry panelists in advertising, fashion and film.

I can help you present in the most effective and engaging way possible by identifying and improving upon your weaknesses and then enhancing your strengths. We will go over pacing, intonation, eye contact, gestures and more to improve your public speaking skills.
