I am a trained graphic design artist and a self taught drawing artist. I have been drawing with graphite, pastels, and digital medium for a very long time now. I draw and paint using Photoshop, Art Rage, and many other painting software. Drawing and painting is my passion and taking this talent digital has been great, I have decided to teach others to draw, especially beginners. If you already know how to draw and paint, you can still learn new ideas and techniques from me.
I graduated from graphic design school in 2013 and this is what sparked my interest to pursue drawing in digital format. I draw just about anything but my expertise is drawing and painting landscapes, such as trees, water, rocks, mountains, and anything else related. I have taught many people on how to draw via YouTube and selling courses from my own website in the past.
Besides my graphic design diploma, I have years of experience in drawing using the traditional mediums, I believe that practice makes perfect. My teachings are broken down so you can learn one element at a time, such as spending time on just trees, and moving on to other landscape elements.
Another way that I have always worked hard in gaining more experience as an artist is carrying a pencil and sketch book with me every where I go. The bulk of my experience comes from drawing constantly when not doing other activities. I draw if I am in the waiting room of the Dr. office and anytime I feel that I am being idle. I can take my experience and show you how to draw better than you thought was possible.
