I'm a graphic, web and digital designer who has been using Adobe creative suite products: Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign for over 15 years. I have a Bachelors of Arts degree in Visual Communication, a Bachelors of Science degree in Marketing and a certificate in Web Design.

Graphic design is my passion. I love coming up with creative ideas and using software applications to make my vision come to life. Share my knowledge, expertise, tips and tricks of the trade with others is something that gives me joy.

So if you are looking to add any type of graphic design skills to your tool kit I'm the person to teach you how to do it!

I look forward to working with you!

Over the past 15 years in my design business I’ve used Photoshop to create many pieces of business and marketing collateral i.e.. Logos, brochures, flyers, business cards, ads, artwork and more recently website layouts, social media images and email marketing materials. That’s what’s so exciting about Photoshop. It allows you to produce so many beautiful and unique things! So whether you’re slightly familiar with Photoshop or you’ve never opened the program up it’s my goal to get you to a level of expertise where you are comfortable navigating Photoshop’s tools, layers, filters and masks so that you can open up your canvas and let your imagination run free! I can’t wait to see what you are ready to design with Photoshop!

Collyne was so helpful and worked at my speed!

I had a basic understanding with Photoshop but was fuzzy on a lot of topics. She cleared up my confusion and took my understanding to the next level!

I plan on booking another lesson with her next week!

Collyne was great! I had used Illustrator before for small tasks here and there but had some big gaps in my knowledge of the program. Collyne has really helped me fill in those gaps and in turn produce some great work!
Collyne is patient and extremely knowledgeable, I would recommend Collyne to everyone.
