Algonquin College animation student looking to spread knowledge of drawing, painting and design

Methodology

My teaching methods are practical and organized, and follow a simple lesson plan. They are flexible to the artistic level of the client. My past experience with teaching has been to small groups of youths, wherein we learned about: breaking down objects into basic shapes and volumes, basic colour theory and tones, the basics of character design, and much more. I have taught how to take a story or comic idea and illustrate it.

Background

I have a degree in Environmental Studies from Carleton University, and worked for several years in ecological sciences. However in 2016 I switched careers to follow my passion of visual arts - drawing, painting, animation, graphic design and more! I am currently studying animation and design at Algonquin College. I have been drawing for 15 years, as well as selling my own art at Ottawa conventions, and building my online presence.
