I am an accomplished artist with more than 40 years experience in various paintings media and over 30 years of teaching students in various levels of proficiency.
My students get an exposure to wide variety of techniques and media, but most important they get to trust their own abilities in expressing themselves via their artwork.
Every session in my studio is at least three hours. Less than this is not realistic and I am only interested in students that are serious about their art and are willing to dedicate the time and effort it takes to become an artist.
When I see a student use what they were taught, in new and excitng ways, breaking new barriers with their art.
When I learn something new from my students.
I have been working under Ayal Armon for 16 years now, and I'll never stop taking lessons! He's brought my art to new levels with each new painting. I've worked in all mediums & truely loved each one,but my true love is oils! I feel so fortunate to work with a teacher as brilliant as Ayal!!
First I see previous work to determine the level and skill of the new student.
I work on establishing a comfortable hand and eye coordination, starting with sketching and drawing on still lives.
Establishing a good composition and than move to either wet or dry media.
I got my BA in fashion design, studied Illustartion and communication design at Otis Parsons in Los Angeles and got my graduate degree MFA from Pratt institute in NY majoring in painting and drawing.
