Masters Degree in visual communication offering lessons in all areas of art and graphic design

Methodology

I can teach you to draw and paint still life and portraits by teaching you how to 'see' and show you how to eliminate the perceptions of what you know is in front of you. I can help you build your art portfolio and develop your confidence in creating art.
I can also teach you skills in Adobe Indesign and Photoshop to make magazines, flyers etc

Background

I have worked in magazine publishing for 20 years using Adobe Creative Suite. Primarily Indesign, photoshop, Illustrator.
I have recently completed a masters degree in Visual Communication. I studied modern conceptual art, drawing and painting. I now paint abstract art in my spare time.
I am keen to start sharing my skills to allow others to develop their creative side.

We first met during our MA and she is fabulous. Not only is Mikaela a lovely person in general, she has the patience and understanding needed for a great tutor.
She can help you dive into your imagination and help to create fantastic pieces of art; she gives you the level of support you need to succeed! She certainly helped me during our course.
