I'm Cory, an artist, illustrator and art teacher.
I live in the Ozark mountains in Missouri.
In 1995, I earned a BFA in Design/Illustration.
My Illustration professors were all from eastern Europe, (Poland, Russia, and Bosnia) & the program was unique.
After graduating, I worked as a freelance illustrator for 9 years.
My clients were mostly advertising (Borden, Tyson, Sears Portrait Studio, General American Insurance).
My largest client was Dynamic Graphics, Inc., which was an international stock illustration company.
After my daughter was born, I taught K-12 public school art for 7 years.
For the last 5+years (before COVID), I taught art for the Springfield Art Museum, Springfield Regional Arts Council, & Placeworks.
In the past, I illustrated traditionally in pen & Ink & watercolor, but I now work in Photoshop and use a Wacom Cintiq.
My focus now is on returning to illustration again,
and all my life I have wanted to create children's books.
I'm so glad to have found SVSLearn!
