I prefer to work from live models, still life setups and plein air painting rather than from photographs; though a good balance of both can be very useful. I believe working from life adds a spontaneity and growth that cannot be achieved from in-studio work alone. Practicing "in the field" allows the student to develop problem solving techniques that can later be applied to working from photo references especially when it comes to 5e watercolor medium.
I cannot imagine life any other way; my calling is to be an artist and to expressive my self through the watercolor medium. I am in love with the philosophies of art and of water and I look forward to sharing that knowledge with those who allow themselves to be taught.

Personal approach: I attempt to meet the student where they are by painting with them, guiding them and evaluating their progress.
I have taken several workshops with renowned artist from all over the country at the Scottsdale Artists' School. I have worked as an art model for many years now and have absorbed fundamental aspects of art and approaches to painting. I received a BA in photography at Montclair State University and continue to educate myself in fields of design and watercolor techniques.
I charge $45 per hour.
After practicing my art for several years I have received many requests from other artists when painting together during live model sessions.
Beginners to intermediate painted and draftsmen.
