I'm a painter, children's book illustrator, and award-winning production designer. I was formally educated at Illinois Central College and Academy of Art University in San Francisco, but I've been a student of the arts for the last 25 years. When my formal education ended, I was still hungry to learn more art! I discovered that for a while, educating myself was a little scary. I was uncertain of my progress without a teacher to guide and encourage me to keep moving forward! You can get on YouTube and learn from some really talented creatives, but it's difficult to find mentorship and this is what I provide.
Excellent for artists who like to experiment, are perhaps a bit shy with their work, and require a mentor who has an upbeat, yet honest, view of life and understands we all learn at our own pace!
My goal as your Art Mentor is to guide you towards achieving your art goals, thinking like an artist and becoming a technician of your chosen craft. I custom curate art lessons based on your personal art goals and learning needs. You can expect to work on projects that excite you. You must desire to progress as the unique artist you are. You must be open to focusing on your thoughts and emotions because that is the basis of expression. You must also be open to being honest with yourself and your art. Our discussions and the exercises should give you the tools to think like an artist. Your dedication to the projects we work on will give you the technical skills.
I've been addicted to creating art most of my life. I was fortunate to have a mother who was very creative as well as an excellent teacher. Her instruction and coaching have stuck with me my entire life, and I enjoy being able to give that to creatives who are lost or hungry for direction.
