With over 20 years tattooing , and almost 40 of being a creative I have been into art since I got something I can draw with in my hand. Starting out in more traditional mediums I cut my teeth in pencil, charcoal, and acrylic painting until discovering tattooing. This began a love affair with art and lead me to open 7th seasons studios. Nothing inspires a higher level of perfection than knowing the client will walk around with my art for the rest of their lives.
After completing a masters in business and having to manage the marketing of a successful shop I quickly realized that the future of art is digital and I began making my own show banners and managing my own website. This sealed the deal and digital art has replaced the traditional pen an ink for me.
Furthermore the industry has changed to such a degree that more and more clients and artists are demanding digital skills i the design and application of art, and so I saw a significantly under served market in people with existing talent, but lacking digital
As a career teacher the most rewarding portion of what i do is seeing someone learn what they previously thought what out of reach and gain a confidence through the learning process....I identify with that because i m a firm believer in the beginner mindset and the idea of a life long learner. To me, art is as essential as breathing and I cannot even narrow down all the ways I express myself through various mediums, that is one of the best competitive advantages I feel we have at 7th season.....we are constantly curious.
I believe every person has within them a desire to create something out of life....and many times they lack the skills to realize this. 7th season studios is about taking this need and in reality changing "I wish"....to "I am glad I did". Teaching allows us to do that, sometimes it is teaching engineering, sometimes writing, and sometimes digital art and film production
We primarily work with small businesses and solo entrepreneurs with no staff and no budget showing them how to make the most of their valuable time to deliver their vision for their business to the clients they serve...this is why our training catalog has such a wide variety of offerings in terms of platforms and skills......because these are the skills we wish we had when we started 7th season.
