Get good at art. And get work.

As artists, we each have our own individual goals and dreams. 

We have things that we love painting, drawing and creating.
But there’s also stuff that can be frustrating and a struggle. 

While there is a lot online to help us improve our skills, it can feel overwhelming and time-consuming.

What would be ideal would be having an experienced artist
who can mentor and guide you. 
I can help with that.

How do I know this mentorship is for me?

This mentorship is NOT for you if:

  • You’re not prepared to work hard
  • You don’t have time to dedicate to homework

How it works:

From the first week to the last week, we’ll be focusing onto your goals and working on your art.
I’ll be guiding you through the whole term and every step of the way. 

Each week you’ll have a one-on-one lesson (1-2hrs) via Discord with me. During the term I’ll be: 

  • Giving you tasks/assignments that are going to improve your portfolio and skills
  • Critiquing your work, and pointing out areas you to improve in
  • Doing paintovers and demos for you
  • Giving you info-sheets and templates that will help in the business side of art
  • Sharing info about working as an artist

At any time you’ll be able to contact me to ask for critique or to check your progress.

If you don't know me - hi, I'm Jess.

I’ve been freelancing as a concept artist and illustrator for over +6 years with clients in the entertainment industry. 

I’ve also been mentoring artists at different levels for a couple of years now.

I’ve seen artists go from feeling lost and unsure with what they’re doing, to having more confidence in their ability, scaling their improvement level and producing a solid portfolio.  

I started out living in an isolated city with no industry, to freelancing online with great clients and living as an artist in Japan. 

I want to share with you everything that has helped me get to where I am today with my art.

I want to push your work to a level so that you can live and thrive from it too.  

If this sounds like something of interest to you, join and apply for a mentorship term.
