Experienced illustrator and designer based in Milton Keynes. Previously lecturer in graphic design

Methodology

It depends very much on what my students want to achieve. If it's booster classes to enhance skills to run alongside GCSE's or college/university then we focus on the areas you need help with and set up a program to suit you. If it's a new skill like photoshop, it is structured classes step by step with assignments to be done in your own time. If it's crochet, then we make a cup of tea, relax and learn.

Background

Possessing over 20 years of experience in design and illustration. Lecturer in graphic design and new media.
I am proud to have been involved in many diverse projects ranging from computer games to illustrating books and creating artwork for animation alongside the more day to day design work so can offer real experience.
Natural drawing ability, excellent photoshop skills and use both of these methods to create my illustration work.

Excellent! I really like how Debra is teaching me the basics of drawing and how to build my confidence too. She is clear and helpful. I suggest her as a tutor.
