About Mikko

I have 15 + years of experience drawing and painting. I studied at the Northwest College of Art as well as in Italy at the Florence academy of Art, I am currently studying at the Evergreen State College. My forté is figurative realism and landscape painting, however my training in technique and knowledge of art history allows me to assist anyone in learning what ever style they choose. I can teach nearly all dry mediums such as pencil, conté, charcoal, as well as Oil paint, acrylic paint, and ink drawing. I have a wide knowledge of materials from paper to canvas and priming as well as grinding oil paint by hand. If you want to learn how to draw or paint I can teach you. If you already know how to draw or paint, I can help you to be even better and more refined.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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 drawing for over 20 years. I began studying art when I attended the Northwest College of Art and Design. I Moved to Italy and studied classical drawing and painting techniques at the Florence Academy of Art, it was there that I reached a proficiency in drawing the figure in space; first with pencil then charcoal (dry 'paintings') and then finally in oil paint. My expertise lies in drawing and painting figures, portraits or landscapes in a realistic or naturalistic manner, however I can assist students who have stylistic goals. I can teach perspective, drawing the figure from imagination, drawing landscapes and city-scapes from imagination, life drawing: figures/portraits/landcapes/city-scapes.

Painting

I have been painting in oils for over 15 years. I began painting when I studied at the Northwest College of Art and Design, starting with acrylic paint. I Moved to Italy and studied classical drawing and painting techniques at the Florence Academy of Art, it was there that I reached a proficiency in drawing the figure in space; first with pencil then charcoal (dry 'paintings') and then finally in oil paint.
