I am a locally based community organizer, with a belief that being an artist is based on the approach you take to life. We are all artistic in some area, and finding how to apply that to a new craft is the enthusiasm I share with others.
I love the opportunity to discover images which speak to me, that I then make a part of my own story by painting them. This causes others who enjoy the arts to be reminded of me when they see things that are sympathetic with work I have done in the past.

I ask that a new student bring three hard copy photos of influences, interests and goals, and a sample of their most recent work. This gives me groundwork for understanding what they are trying to achieve. From there I have a strong idea of what their skill level is, and show them what I would do as a next step with the supplies at hand. Then it is important to be sure they are enjoying the exploration of their chosen medium. At the end of early sessions, I focus on the tools they are acquiring to achieve the next step of self discovery and projection into where they want to be.
