I have been oil painting my whole life, and would love to share my knowledge to help hone the skills of artists looking to improve theirs. I believe that technique, although important, is secondary to SEEING. I can help you see and deconstruct what you're looking at and help you transfer that to the canvas. I can help you set up your palette so you're more efficient with your use of paint, and help you achieve luminous skin tones and realistic effects. You can see my work at smportraits.com.
I love recreating what I see onto the canvas, and I love watching others improve.

I love to see art that my students have created in the past to guage where we should begin. I'm happy to work with all levels, from beginners to seasoned artists looking to dial in their skills.
I'll begin a dialog to determine what they are looking to gain from their instruction, and take it from there.
I have taken classes at the Art Students League and the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
