Do you want to learn to draw your favorite characters, your pets, friends and family members? Or maybe you want to draw fantastical creatures with magical powers? Maybe you’re a medical student interested in drawing anatomy to help you study? Perhaps, you’re more interested in making intense abstract emotional drawings with deep philosophical meaning? Or, maybe you just want to learn to draw eyes and hands better? Whatever your area of focus or skill level, I will help you to sharpen your observational skills, expand your understanding of important art principles, become comfortable with a variety of drawing media, and teach you to translate your ideas onto the page to bring them to life. I believe art is an invaluable form of expression meant to bring the student peace, joy and a broadly applicable set of skills. My lessons are customized to the needs and goals of each individual student with subjects ranging from life art, to digital illustration, to mixed media drawing, and much more. Let’s get started!
About Karli M.

I am a professional freelance artist, illustrator, medical illustrator, and graphic designer from south Florida. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts, with a concentration in Drawing in 2017 from the University of Florida. My fascination with anatomy then led me to pursue my Master’s in medical art from the University of Dundee in Scotland in 2019. I love sharing all that I’ve learned with others so that they can bring their artistic dreams to life! With my formal training, professional experience and variety of artistic interests, I provide a versatile and adaptable teaching environment, all with an upbeat, “can do,” attitude. As the infamous Bob Ross once said: in art, “We don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents.” For me, art is not about immediate perfection. It’s about the process of discovery, observation, and the development of entirely attainable skills. I aim to bring my students an inviting and encouraging environment, which emphasizes growth and fun in the learning experience! I draw a lot of inspiration from nature, life art, bohemian and cottage core styles, anatomy, astrology, and cartoons like Avatar the Last Airbender. In my art practice, I experiment with a variety of different media and styles. From detailed mixed media anatomical renderings with cosmic and floral elements, to simplified digital illustrations and original character designs, I can help you make a wide variety of artwork, depending on your interests. Whether you want to learn graphite, charcoal, watercolor, acrylic paint, or digital software like Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, I can help you understand the media and learn some helpful techniques in working with them. No matter your skill level or interests, I will work with you to reach your art goals! I’d love to hear what inspires you and where you want to go on your artistic journey, so send me a message to see if we’re a good fit, and let’s get started!
