Overview

Hello, my name is Joe. I am excited when I learn of new potential artists. My skills are well rounded and focused. I can teach you in many media applications and art forms. I am able to teach from basic drawing techniques to full Portrait art, Film & Digital Portrait / Fashion Photography and Image Retouching/ Manipulation. My forte' are Drawings, Acrylic Paintings, Charcoal Drawings, Photography and Digital image manipulation. I have been published in Art and Fashion magazines for my art. My goal is to teach you how to see the world around us as a canvas and cull your visions from it and recreate it to your desires. My goal is to have you gain a deep understanding of yourself as an artist and how to translate that onto/into your media of choice.

Joe couldn't have been better. He was super knowledgeable about drawing and was able to focus on the areas I wanted to improve on and explain things in a really helpful way!! Would highly recommend.

Our son is enjoying drawings lesson with Joe very much. Joe explains concepts very clearly and in an age appropriate manner. He is also great at applying our son's strong interest in video game characters to learning different aspects of drawing.

What a brilliant artist! Joe went over everything an artist needs to know about color. He took the time to explain color psychology, pigment, characteristics, color schemes, color mixing, shadows, highlights, ect! He provided a solid understanding of color knowledge that I can put to effective use. Thank you Joe!!!!!!!!!!

Just doing one lesson with lines has increased the wealth of my skill quite a bit. I love how Joe gave direct instructions, yet room for creativity. The lesson was great fun and I realized that I CAN actually draw!

I had a great time with Joe! He was very patient and informative. He knows how to work a camera inside and out and has a great way of teaching, where you can visualize what he is saying to make learning an enjoyable experience! A+ I recommend Joe completely!
