Let's learn together...

Unlocking your potential in the world of Illustration, Surface Pattern Design, Graphic Design, and more is within your reach. I firmly believe that with the right guidance, you can master anything you set your mind to. With a lifelong passion for teaching, I have spent 30 years nurturing budding talents in Commercial Art, Theatrical Design, and Fine Arts at both Trade and Academic Schools. I have also simultaneously balanced a career in graphic design, illustration and selling my own art on retail products. Now, my enthusiasm always pushes me to share more advanced and focused topics.

In my classes, you can expect engaging learning experiences that last up to an hour (some shorter, some longer). These sessions will equip you with a complete skillset, accompanied by abundant positive reinforcement and a carefully curated series of related classes that form a cohesive design continuum.

My sole aim is to ensure your happiness and satisfaction with each project you undertake. After all, learning becomes truly joyful when it's a source of fun and fulfillment.

As a licensed artist collaborating with two different agents, a significant portion of my work involves art licensing. Throughout our journey together, I will impart countless industry tricks and insider knowledge, leaving no stone unturned.

Let's embark on this exciting educational voyage together, where your goals and aspirations take center stage. Together, we can achieve great things!

Instead of hesitating or fearing the unknown, take the plunge and embrace the challenge of learning. Recognize that fulfilling your dream requires effort, dedication, and stepping out of your comfort zone, but the rewards and personal growth that can be achieved are worth it.

Asking for help is an opportunity for you to develop new skills, improve your performance, and enhance your your overall success. By taking the plunge, you can seize this opportunity and make the most of it.
