I teach Illustrator skills ranging from basic text and graphic design to creating fully rendered vector art. You will learn the workspace and tools as we develop a workflow that suits your style of working and creating. As you advance you will learn the tools and design techniques to "build" any asset or graphic you want to create. You will be able to implement non-destructive effects to your graphics and apply interesting color palettes. If your interests are in digital art, you will learn all of the same drawing concepts of traditional drawing plus digital painting techniques and color theory while using meshes and gradients. If you are a more advanced student, we can dive into more directed areas of study including principles of design, design trends, and graphic styles. I love teaching and I'm so happy I can continue to share my passions with those willing to try something new and challenging!

Adobe Creative Suite has most of the best multimedia software programs ever made. I have used it as a professional for over five years. I look forward to teaching you how to use the "magic" that lies within it. I look for eager students to understand what they're doing as opposed to just memorizing. I will listen to your goals and adjust the curriculum to your needs. Whether it's working with Illustrator for the first time to getting advice for a project you're currently working on, I can assist you with your needs. I have lots of energy and love students with a sense of humor! Let's start having fun! I adjust and build my lesson structure so students learn what they are interested in and want to learn, while building strong foundations of basic Illustrator vector sketching, as well as converting images scanned into Illustrator and manipulation. Designing prints for canvas or fabric printing, technical drawing, and anything that the student is interested in learning. Even if you just want to get a project done and need someone to guide you through it or do a lot of it for you, I'm here to help.
