I am an arts educator with a love of art, teaching, and a ton of patience. I teach kids, teens, and adults the joy of learning to draw and paint. Award winning art studio in Gilbert to study in, great support staff, and a fantastic rate of success. I offer creativity and smiles!
I have always found it amazing to see the growth and positive attitude that art brings to people, both old and young. I enjoy the fact that I can make a difference in how people can see the world.
My mom and I have loved our experience and we have both seen so much improvement. Can't wait to go back every week!
I talk with students and/or parents to visualize what the learning should involve. I also make sure i know the interest both subject and involvement from the student. I then wish to see any previous work and also like to have the student paint or draw in front of me to check current skills. A lesson plan is then loosely applied with objectives.
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and Masters degree in Art Education with emphasis in painting from University of Tennessee, Former art professor, member of Town of Gilbert Arts Commission, founder and owner of SunDust Gallery Paint and Studio in Gilbert since 2009. Professional artist and educator with artwork in collections nationwide. Voted best of Gilbert and Mesa for art lessons, and art business. Hundreds of students have allowed me to understand the arts learning process.
Love of Art
My students range from 5 years old to 89, and I enjoy all levels of age, expertise, and capability. I especiall love beginners, so I can see the artistic growth.
Not all artists make good teachers!
