Why I Started The School

I discovered early on that my true passion in life is teaching and when I decided that I wanted to pursue this full time, I put a plan into place and created The Silver Drawing Academy.  I have enjoyed the process of witnessing my students over the years grow and succeed in the art industry, starting up their own companies and being hired within the animation studios.

Having reviewed hundreds of portfolios from artists wishing to break into this emerging industry, I know that I can help guide artists in the right direction in order to give the boost needed to take the next step. My goal is to help build the artists confidence and skills in order to have a fulfilling art career as well as remember how fun it is to draw.

Silver Drawing Academy is here to help with clear, practical instruction.
