Andrew Kavanagh has loved creating art since he was a child. He initially studied drawing, painting and printmaking at SUNY Purchase in upstate New York to study drawing, painting and printmaking. Years later, he transferred to the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and also took classes at Massachusetts College of Art.
In the early 90s, Andrew took computer graphics classes at the School of Visual Arts in New York City and fell in love with Photoshop. He built up a portfolio and worked in advertising agencies in New York doing retouching and photo compositing through the 90s. Since moving to San Francisco in 2000, he balances his time between Photoshop tutoring and freelance photo editing.
Aside from his day to day work, he is the founder and head organizer of the popular Photoshop and Photography Group on Facebook, now with almost 430,000 members. He also runs the Photoshop and Photography Advice Group, also on Facebook.
