What is your typical process for working with a new student?

My Process is: See (Vision), Learn, Draw

Vision Stage: The begiinning stage for a new student begins with learning about their skills and vision. The student will learn to understand "Artist Vision" which is one of the key skills to develop new artists. The student will learn to see their environment like an Artist should. This ability will help them develop then master their talents more quickly. 

Learn Stage: Students will learn the basic techniques and skills of drawing during this stage. Basic understanding of form, shape, foreground/background, shading/light, Value/Tone will be taught to student. These basics will be applied to the first stage.

Draw Stage: This is the maturation stage for a new artist. During this stage the student will learn the creative process for a work of art. The student will learn how to choose a subject, create a layout, and build a drawing to a complete work of Art. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I studied Illustration/Drawing at Nossi College of Art in Madison Tn. I acheived my Associate degree in Graphic Design with a focus in Illustration.

My experience in drawing and illustration is diverse. I have worked on many fine art portraits, book illustrations, character designs, storyboads for commercial use, sports illustration, and many other commissions for work. I have experience teaching one-on-one lessons or classroom lessons in drawing.

How did you get started teaching?

My love for Art and my long years of creating art for clients has brought me to the teaching side. This gives me the opportunity to pass my craft to future generations. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students of all ages and skill level. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Delivering each portrait to clients always makes me happy and proud of my work. Seeing the joy of others who love art is wonderful. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Observe an Artist's work...and ask yourself...is the Artist someone you can say is really good at their craft. Will you be happy to learn to be as good as they are. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

A student should always understand the difference in talking about drawing from teaching drawing. A teacher has to be able to help another artist understand the process and logistics of learning to draw. Developing vision and skill basics is vital to becoming a good Artist. 

So ask the teacher...is teaching a skill of theirs as well as art/drawing.
