Workshops

Looking for a drawing workshop for your school, event, or library? Call me! I’m available to run workshops for groups (up to 40) or one-on-one tuition.

I conduct my workshops as step-by-step and my main focuses are: superheroes and villains; manga/anime; comic creation and general cartooning. My workshops are suited for all skill levels and all ages. I can also tailor the workshop(s) to your needs such as: age; skill leavel; topic/focus – such as under sea creatures.

I really enjoy working with people of all ages and find workshops both inspiring for me and the attendees. I love seeing the different styles of the attendees and I love the surprises that come from each workshop.
