I have been working as an online content writer for the last eighteen months, producing articles for both my own sites and other sites. I have the ability to take complex information and re-assemble into writing that is easy to understand. I like to take a business idea and turn it into something personal. I have several websites where I am building my own content for residual income. Some of my best articles are currently on the front page of Google search and receive regular hits from Google searches. I am knowledgeable in using keywords to produce search-friendly writing without making it sound "stuffed. I have also received very good feedback for my writing for my online writing community, Hubpages. I am also experienced in journalistic writing. I have written some freelance pieces for local newspapers, and have recently started as the Winnipeg Cat Examiner. My pieces there have received marks from 7-8 out of 8. With courses in Journalism, I am capable of doing an interview and writing in a news style. My background is in Education. I worked as a teacher for seven years. My major was high school English. I spent many years correctly student work and teaching them the principles of writing and reading. Because the best way to learn is to teach something, my writing knowledge also increased while I was teaching English. My knowledge of the field of Education gives me the gift of breaking down information and re-presenting it in a fresh and engaging manner. As a teacher, you have to be a first-rate communicator and always strive to get through to your students in a effective manner.

I am an illustrator and a fine artist. I work mostly in oils and/or digital media. My website is tessaguze.com. As an artist, I am inspired by other living creatures and the many varying ways they live in and perceive the world. I choose to paint subjects to which I have a deep emotional response, whether that response is to feel happy or sad, frightened or comforted. I always sympathize with the underdog, the downtrodden, and the undervalued. I am driven to learn about different cultures and ways of life and my work reflects this. I intend my paintings to help viewers understand and accept people and creatures who seem different from themselves. I want my work to speak to people directly. To this end I strive to bring my subjects to life in such a way that they are immediately comprehensible and the viewer has an opportunity to find some common ground with them. I paint mostly in oil because of the rich complexity of the medium and the variety of techniques it makes possible. These allow me to represent a recognizable natural world, while increasing the interest and emotional impact of the painting with brush strokes, textures and glazes. My hope is that my work can communicate with as wide a range of people as possible, reaching across differences in culture, age, knowledge and personality. I believe the most important thing a work of art can do it communicate with people.

I think best with a pencil in my hand! It allows me to bring the ephemeral to the material. I am a portrait artist, graphic illustrator, fashion illustrator and my specialty is bringing a mystical aspect to my work. My paintings say something more than just how the subjects appeared to others. I try to see their energetic quality, rather than just the photographic detail, as a camera can do that. My gift is to paint what I see beyond the visible spectrum and to bring a little "extra" to my work. I have been painting and drawing for well over 35 years and my experience has brought me to do everything from book illustration to product design, architectural illustrations to logos and even medical illustration. I have a Bachelor of Science in Education degree and a Teaching Certificate from Ohio State University. I am an artist and I love to use my gift and enrich peoples lives with beautiful art.
