With a fine art degree and many years working as a professional illustrator and teacher - (in both, the traditional and digital media) -
I decided to give classes and provide workshops again, in a number of disciplines - and to both, the novice and the more experienced.
I am passionate about the visual and creative arts and have always delighted in seeing others discover, grow and succeed in their individual skills and talents!
You can choose to work with 'traditional' mediums or digitally, in a relaxed by encouraging way...
Over the years, while working in the art and design arena in a professional capacity, I have held private and small number (traditional) art classes and computer 'art' classes. I also lectured in painting and drawing for 2 years full time, then as a 'visiting lecturer' on and off for around ten years.
In my capacity as an art director and senior multimedia producer, I also mentored both, academics and higher education students in various areas of info-graphics, animation, illustration, presentation, 3D and video (filming and editing) and even interactive and e-learning...
I know he is my brother but I also know that this man really knows his stuff. I would highly recommend his tutoring in any form of art or IT. A huge thumbs up!
Oh my word - Ian is the very best !!
I have known Ian for the past 25 years. He is a hugely, multi-talented artist. Not only painting with oils, but also water colours and pencil sketches to name but a few. However, his knowledge and talent is not only limited to traditional paintings, but also covers digital art and in fact his talent pertaining to art as a whole is vast. One of his greatest qualities is his willingness and love to share his knowledge with others by way of teaching. I have personally learned so much from Ian and I know I will still learn much more. He is such a patient tutor and I cannot recommend him highly enough! I know without a doubt, that anyone learning from Ian will be hugely blessed and learn so much!
I’ve known Ian for many years. He is an amazing artist, great friend and a great choice for your personal tutor! I know you’ll learn from him and enjoy the experience.
Ian has such a gentle and reassuring way of teaching. You know you are safe to ask endless questions and he has such patience, listening and sharing his wealth of knowledge. It doesn't matter whether someone is a beginner or has been an artist for many years, Ian has a way of teaching everyone and you come away feeling like you cannot wait for the next lesson.
Ian has given lessons throughout his career as an Artist and I have watched him encourage and support beginners and accomplished artists, alike. He is confident, with many years of experience in all mediums.
Ian has been an artist for many years (40+) and has worked in every medium of art. He is a very passionate and talented artist. His experience and knowledge will be an asset to Superprof to give lessons to any age of person interested in learning. I highly recommend Ian for this position!
I have known Ian for well over 15 years, having worked with him on both 2D and 3D projects in the media industry. As a traditional Graphic Artist and Illustrator who had transitioned from creating artwork 'by hand' to computer generated graphics, I hadn't yet used any 3D software. Ian helped me to learn Cinema 4D and Poser, and his teaching style was both inspiring and nurturing.
Ian has a superior knowledge of design and illustration. He constantly keeps up-to-date with software programme updates and learning new ones. His technical ability is second to none, and I would highly recommend Ian as a tutor to anyone wanting to improve their technical skills, learning from a master. I wouldn't be where I am today without Ian's expert advice and encouragement.
Besides his wealth of knowledge, his exceptional talent and a vast range of experience and skills Ian is also committed to humanitarian activities and is actively engaged in community and charitable work. This says much for his character and personality.
As a retired Design School head and having employed and worked with many lecturers, tutors, researchers etc over the last 32 years I would certainly recognize the rare combination of skills and knowledge that Ian would be able to contribute at any level.
