I have a pretty well rounded history: Graphic designer: 20+ years, photographer 10+ years, artist/painter and I even ran a print shop for several years so I know what you need to prep files for printing, photography, page layout, web and much more so that your files meet industry standards.
I love art and I am passionate about making things beautiful. That spills over into Graphic design, Painting and more: I have 20+ years as a graphic designer, photographer 10+ years, artist/painter. I have been instructing for over 6 years.

I want you to be able to put to practice what I teach you so that you can successfully manage on
your own in that area.
