I teach a variety of drawing and painting media, color theory, concept, cartooning, caricature, and creativity. I am an experienced Art Instructor, having led an Illustration School for 20 years for University students. I have worked with all ages as well as students from many continents. I have had opportunity to teach art workshops internationally. I have a BFA in Illustration from Art Center College of Design. I have facilitated many Art Exhibitions as well as exhibited work myself along with free-lance projects for clients.
I really enjoy teaching art techniques and concepts and helping each individual student find their unique message or expression. I especially enjoy painting in Acrylic as it is quick drying, versatile, and can make so many textures very easily. I also enjoy drawing people of many cultures. I have taught figure, action, fashion and foundational drawing many years. I have also taught professional colored pencil which is a versatile media as well. I like to motivate, inspire, and encourage!

I teach foundational skills as well as advanced techniques. I like to cater to the specific needs and experience level of each student. Discussion as well as taking a look at any previous work you've done will help guide the starting point. Setting goals for the development you would like to accomplish is also part of my strategy.
