About this pro

I love both art and teaching. I have painted from an early age and got my Master of Fine Arts with honor from California State University of Long Beach. Yet being an artist and a teacher was a natural path for me. I would be happy to help others as well. 

The freedom of expression to create excellent work that last long and bring art and beauty into existence is absolutely enjoyable for me. I enjoy to see others go through the same steps of learning and creating to the point they feel confident to call themselves an artist.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I start with learning about the students need and interest. Then I offer my suggestions and evaluations which if needed I offer to learn the elements of drawing first then introduce the different methods of painting. I recommend to choose the favorite medium for and focus to learn all aspect of it.

I have Master of Fine Arts in Art Studios - drawing and painting.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A small group of artists volunteered to paint the walls of the homes for homeless people in San Jose. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

To experience a few classes with the artist first, then choose the right teacher for a longer time.

Each student might have different questions, but knowing about teacher's experience in art and years of teaching are important. The character of the teachers can be discovered by a few visits :)
