Summer graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Drawing and Painting, learning traditional methods and finding a way to use them for something modern and fun. She grew up observing her mother paint murals and faces, working in a wide range of art that eventually influenced Summer to explore many different styles herself.
Since she was a child, she has always had a passion for cartoons in their every form, creating comics, animations, and illustrations in various Anime and Western Cartoon styles. Though she is trained in many mediums, Summer has a special fondness for Ink Pen, Watercolor, Oil Painting, and Digital Art.
As a teacher, Summer strives to help students discover their own artistic passions and keep the desire to create burning. Her goal is to replace negative views of one’s own work or skills with positive thinking and the desire to experiment and grow as an artist.
