Su di me

Are you an artist? Is it difficult for you to speak or write about your work in English? Do you want to improve your critique skills? I can help!

I have a bachelor’s degree in Fine Art, a master’s degree in TESOL (teaching English), and I taught English for almost five years at an art university. During that time, I helped art students learn to speak confidently about their work, critique it, and write about it. In addition to my fine art background, I have worked as a freelance graphic/web designer for 20 years.

I have helped students/clients in these majors/mediums:
Advertising
Animation
Architecture
Art History
Communications and Media
Fashion
Fine Art (Drawing/Painting/Printmaking/Sculpture)
Game Development
Graphic Design
Illustration
Industrial Design
Interior Design
Jewelry Design
Motion Pictures/Television/Acting
Music Production
Photography
Visual Development
Web Design

If art is your passion, I can help you to speak, critique, and write about it in English. I work with clients at beginner, intermediate, and advanced English levels. Check out my courses and videos to see what I do!
