About this pro

I believe that every person is creative; we are born that way. Art come from our souls; it is sacred and therefore there are no ‘mistakes.’ I encourage my students to paint what they feel, to be free in their artistic expression, combining the study of techniques with their innate creative spirits. 

I’ve have 20 years of instructing students from all levels of painting experience. I’ve shared my experience in art centers, cruise ships and corporate around the world. I encourage creativity and fun for ages nine to ninety. 

My artwork is in both national and international collections. I currently reside in St. Petersburg, Fl where I teach experimental water media and collage.

    Marie Cummings This past year I had the pleasure of taking art lessons from Marie Cummings. She opened my horizons to working in a different medium and gave me the courage to expand my own concept of what I could do. Marie essentially took me out of my box with her thoughful instruction and encouragement. I'm looking forward to continuing my lessons with Marie. Her work is inspiring and beautiful!

    Amazing experience working with Marie Cummings. She is extremely creative and a wonderful teacher. Always presenting innovative ideas and helping us to see them through. I learned so much about color and shapes.

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

First I find out what the student is interested in learning and what they hope to accomplish. Knowing something about their life experience is helpful in knowing them. I work with students at their level of experience with a focus on design and use of color. 

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

I’m independently trained taking lessons from various artists in painting and drawing. My education is a continuous process. 

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

In a class structure Of more than 2 students I charge $25 each for a two hour class. The fee for one student is $45.

How did you get started teaching?

I was asked to teach Experimental Watermedia at the Dunedin Fine Art Center which is the first class I took at the facility five years earlier
