Hi there! I have been working as a professional oil painter and fine art instructor to adults for almost 5 years now. I am passionate about working with beginners and intermediate level students who would like to learn foundational drawing and painting skills. I ensure that each student has specialized lessons that guide them to their particular goals, while always focusing on drawing and painting fundamentals. Some of the subjects I offer include, specific drawing skills in graphite and charcoal, basic - advanced oil painting, color theory, composition, portraiture, landscape painting and more. I am confident that using the techniques I show you, with practice, you will be able to draw and paint anything you'd like!
