I have 10 years of experience as a professional illustrator, working with various clients. I can adjust my lessons to focus on what you want to learn, in watercolor, mixed media, or digital art. Because of my experience, I'm able to teach you about the business side of art, including how to run your own business and network to find clients. As a bi and trans man, I am very open-minded and welcoming to students from all backgrounds.

Please note that at this time, I am only equipped to teach watercolor, mixed media, and digital art.

About Valentine C.

I'm a freelance illustrator from Salt Lake City, Utah. I've worked as a professional artist for over ten years, and have sold work in multiple local galleries. I have also worked as an artist and director on several video games. I have designed and sold several products, and I also have a lot of experience networking.

I am a bi, trans man so I am very open-minded and interested in several subjects. I'm especially fond of pop culture, including video games, movies, and comics. Whether you just want to make art for fun, or you are pursuing a career, I am here to help!

Valentine truly took the time to ensure I learned at my own pace to be the best that I could be. I learned more from Valentine than I did from the art teachers I had in school and it really expanded my capabilities.m
Truly exceeded my expectations.

I've worked with Valentine on a couple different projects throughout the years and every time has been an absolute dream. He's dedicated, talented, and is always well researched in the concepts that he brings to the table.

Things I had not known or considered before are presented in ways that are easy to understand and apply, making sure that progress is never a frustration of misunderstanding, but a steady slope of execution.

If you're looking for an instructor with a unique viewpoint and patient, kind disposition, I couldn't recommend Valentine higher.
