Hi All! My name is Kevin and I live in beautiful San Diego, California. (Although I’m a Midwest native). With my 25 years of Photoshop experience, I am well beyond proficient, and now, I’m into creating photo manipulation with the goal of making fanciful, fun, beautiful, composite art.

I started my journey into composite work about 5 years ago, after seeing some other artists’ work online. I was drawn to the general aesthetic of the surreal landscapes and characters. I love that the only limit is one’s imagination.
After wading through a myriad of different tutorials and speed paintings over the past few years, I was able to master the different tools that allow me to create the kind of art that you see in my profile. If you would like to learn how to create these types of images, I would love to share what I’ve learned with you and help you achieve your creative ambitions.

Essentially, I am here to offer you a direct approach- no need to wade through fragmented videos or look in different places for help with different skills; I am your one-stop-shop. Simply contact me, and depending on your skill level with Photoshop, we can create an outline of lessons that will work for you. I will also share resources I have used over the years and offer my tips and shortcuts, so you can expand your skill base and increase your skill level, fast.

I hope we get a chance to work together!

Kevin’s photoshop skills are only rivaled by his unusual imagination. His mind lives outside the box and his solutions to any challenge—whether it be a photomanipulation, textures, brush uses or any other art/design problem—blew my mind. Watching him teach and explain things to myself as well as to young artists/designers was not only fun but very easy to follow and understand. I can not recommend Kevin enough.

Kevin is the perfect TECH teacher: patient, creative, and invested in your success. Photoshop can be intimidating. So can trying to learn it from an expert. Kevin breaks it down for you so your choices become intuitive. I never felt he was talking down to me. Kevin only ever encouraged. He provided a great balance of tech know-how and creative inspiration. He has given me the confidence to express myself!
