Teaching since:

Are you ready to get creative and feel inspired? I have over eight years of experience teaching college level courses in art, graphic design, illustration, and fashion design. Since 2004, I have been working independently as an illustrator and graphic designer with a diverse group of clients including house-hold-name profile brands.

My illustrations have been featured in corporate advertising campaigns, received national and international press coverage, exhibited in museum and fine art galleries, featured on television, and have appeared on the exterior of buildings throughout Los Angeles.

With expertise in graphic art and a passion for education, I am confident I can assist in helping you accomplish your goals whether they be to learn new skills, prepare your portfolio, or take your personal brand to the next level.

Robert teaches with an enthusiasm that infects his students. His own experiences in the art world, and growth of his own art, inspires his students and ignites their passion for learning.

Knows his stuff. Always very patient with me and I have learned so much from him. Since taking classes with Robert my drawing skills have majorly improved and my portfolio is looking strong.
