« Perfect! Crystal is great at communicating and really tailors the lessons around my needs and interests. She gives plenty of great advice during lessons. She is good at breaking down a complex task into small, easy tasks, so the learning process is fun! I highly recommend Crystal for anyone who wants to learn art in a fun, easy way! »

Learn to illustrate using traditional or digital media with a freelance illustrator!

Methodology

I take your long-term goals into account and create a set of smaller short-term goals for us to work on and achieve together. My classes are very personalised and I use your learning styles and preferences to create a learning environment that's best suited to you. Illustration is a very varied and subjective field, so I have the general goal of making sure you know the foundations of illustration principles (how to work with different media, how to use perspective and focus, linework, colour, shade, etc) and how to work with those principles to create and develop your own style.

Background

Hello! I'm a freelance illustrator who is also experienced in tutoring.

I have experience in comic work, various traditional media, digital media, portraits, landscape, concept work, storyboarding, life drawing and more.

I've been tutoring for a few years now and have also worked at a weekend school for a little over four years where I mostly tutored children aged 7-15. I also ran a series of workshops last year in Perth where I taught classes of around 12-15 people with ages ranging from 11-40+.

I am also experienced in HTML, CSS and Javascript, so if your goal is to make a portfolio or perhaps work website design into your repertoire, I'd love to help out with that too!
