Since graduating in 2008 I have been a freelance illustrator and general jobbing creative from my home in North Shropshire. I have made s large interactive mural for pre-schoolers, run an art club in a primary school and made giant puppets for the Welshampton Festival of Fire as well as the usual run of drawing fun. I have also coordinated a series of ten week drawing courses for beginners in Ellesmere which have been very succesful. I am also acting as a mentor to students with educational support needs at the North Wales School of Art & Design in Wrexham, part of Glyndwr University. Now, though, I am moving to Shrewsbury and reevaluating my career path into the future!
I can offer, to students in Shrewsbury or locale, tutoring in the following:
-Drawing, either from life or from ones imagination (the two are often intimately linked!)
-Support with drawing based problems (i.e. college/university course work.)
-Instruction in using Adobe Photoshop as a drawing tool. PLEASE NOTE: You WILL need a fully registered copy of Adobe Photoshop on your portable computer, you WILL also need a Wacom tablet or similar to draw with. I have my own which you would be welcome to try out but unfortunately I need it so you cant take it away ;)
-Ongoing support & mentorship for you while you continue to develop your drawing skills. This can be conducted 1:1 or online as preferred.
-I also enjoy working with groups and on specific problems, projects or other challenges. If you think having a tame illustrator on board would help, please do get in touch!
Do have a look at my portfolio website (linked below) and the much broader collection of my work on Deviantart (ditto) and I look forward to hearing from you if you think I might be the right person to help.
This is a new venture for me, building on many years of offering teaching sessions and mentorship as well as thirty years plus experience of drawing. It is, however, a career and as such I will have to charge a professional fee. I am prepared to negotiate a reasonable fee, though, and this can be affected by a limited budget but I am sorry to say that I will not be able to take on any unpaid or speculative work. Sorry.
