I am a teaching artist for the MD State Arts Council and have been trained in Arts Integration (coordinating Fine Arts with Academics). I would consider myself a mixed media artist. I work with paint, glass, pen & ink, clay, wood, metal, etc. As a painter (all types - portrait, landscape, illustration, stylized, murals, etc.), I feel that I can acheive many different styles - traditional to abstract. I have had my own art business for twenty years and continue to multitask in assorted art related fields. I also enjoy reading, writing, and travelling; I have a special penchant for children's books both for the stories as well as the illustrations. I have been a designer and executor of commercial leaded glass windows, restaurant interior design, sign painting, and enjoy anything that requires a creative touch. I could keep going...!

Cover Letter Dear Sir/madam, My design skills are based on traditional methods hailing from a Fine Art background, familiarity with traditional techniques: drawing, painting, sculpture, and photography. I can take a project from pencil sketch to digitally finished product. I always aim to achieve high standards and good taste. I work with Adobe Master Suite CS4, CS5, my workflow includes: Photoshop, After Effects , Flash, Dreamweaver and Premiere. I use the Suite to create project for online and film, I have broad knowledge of Animation, and I have worked on various collaborative projects. I have been a self-employed model maker for the past eight years making 1/12th scale characters for the doll house collectors market. My website http://www.misssallyworld.com . Each model is one of a kind sculpt from polymer clay. The experience of being self-employed has made me incredibly hard working, conscientious and more then used to long hours. At some of the larger Dolls House shows which I sell my models at, they also run workshops where I teach people how to make a model using the same techniques I have perfected. I have also been studying for the last three years, covering many aspects of animation, film and web design. Part of my MA involved group collaborations where I donned many hats. This is a paragraph from the feedback my Tutor sent me; “You have done really well on every job you have signed up for on the various Haiku projects. The fly is very well designed and lifts the overall visual quality of the Dead Fly haiku. The felt embroidery was beautifully made and had a great impact on the overall look of the Eagle haiku. The green screen work and the compositing is faultless and the 3D fish is well modelled and animated. The credits on Basho and the frog are very good. You have clearly worked very well as a member of all the teams. You have been described as reliable, fast, producing work of high standard, good at listening and happy to modify work when needed. You have done brilliantly!” http://www.misssallyworld.com/animation/index.htm contains examples of my work. http://www.misssallyworld.com/emailHTML/emailFormatCV.html this is a link to my online CV.
