This is me, I became an illustrator because I wanted to be really happy in my job and it worked! I always aim to put love and happiness into everything I do. I really enjoy working with people and helping them learn new ways of expressing their creativity, and I’m good at making things simple.
I’m interested in combining hand drawn and coloured elements with digital.
My undergraduate degree is in Architecture (B.Sc from UCD) and I have a Masters in Digital Media Technology (DIT). I am also an Adobe Certified Expert.
Melissa’s Digital Illustration course is absolutely perfect for anyone looking to get to grips with the basics of Photoshop & Illustrator.
The 3 day course covers just enough to give you the starting skills to go create on your own, and offers follow on support if you want to take it further. Perfectly paced and excellent notes, I would recommend it highly.
[one on one tuition] Learning Illustrator with Go Radiate was excellent. Melissa was extremely easy to work with and with an intuitive flair she summed up what I needed to learn within the first half hour of meeting me. What followed was a truly bespoke 1 -2-1, designed to meet my needs exactly.
My 2 days of tuition was punctuated with precise breaks which helped the absorption of the new material, and absolutely no time was wasted. At every stage I could tell that Melissa checked we were on target and covering what I needed, and with a relaxed meticulousness she ensured I had thoroughly learned everything by applying the skills to my own projects ,at the right time during the class.
I would thoroughly recommend Melissa to anyone who wants to learn/ brush up on Illustrator or Photoshop. She is an Adobe expert and has so much background knowledge and clear passion for illustration and design that time spent with her, not only helped me effectively learn a new package, but was engaging, enjoyable and satisfying.
