    Knox has amazing low key energy and huge passion for his craft. His way of explaining and demonstrating make it easy to assimilate. He really tuned into how my brain could comprehend the teachings. 🎨 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  • Celine Zam

    It was a joy to watch him paint. His painting style is beautiful. While painting, he explained the process: the composition, the values, the colours and their temperature. I wanted to loosen my style, so we focused on brush strokes. He can do magic with brush strokes! He also talked about the importance of edges and transitions between light and shadow. He gave me recommendations, told me what works and what doesn’t and shared his vast knowledge about art and what it takes to be an artist. I have learnt a lot and much enjoyed working with him.

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

It really depends upon the student and what his or her goals are, but in the end, drawing is always the beginning and then we go from there. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I've been drawing and painting for most of my life.  I've never stopped taking some kind of figurative workshop, which lead me to working for Disney in traditional animation but then moved on to painting cells.  As for painting, I reproduced master works and do my best to paint everyday.  

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$45 per one hour session.  

How did you get started teaching?

One of my best friends daughter actually was my first and I haven't stopped since.  

What types of students have you worked with?

All ages from "8 to 65" years old.
