About this pro

I am a graphic designer with over 25 of drawing, painting, illustrating, and photography skills.  I now teach painting classes at Painting With A Twists  in Sandy Springs, GA and I have published two children’s books on  

I have drawn since I was a young girl, I love working in all types of media especially painting and computer work.  I can pick up a drawing or a painting and understand how it was created.  I like being able to share and show others how to draw or paint with ease, letting them realize that it is relaxing and enjoyable.  When I share what I do I get satisfaction in knowing that everyone is capable of learning something new and fun.

    She is really great at taking a vague idea and turning it into something beautiful. She sees and uses color in an amazing way and brings them to life everyday.

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

$15.00 per hour for teaching art to students (ages 14 to 17) which includes the basic of art, drawing basics and the use of art tools.

$25.00 per hour for teaching adults (18 and up) who want to learn to paint or draw and have had former experience with using art tools.  Who also have some knowledge and true ambition to become better artists.

How did you get started teaching?

I have always taught art in one form or another while attending school and even after graduating from school.  Now as an actual teacher at Painting with A Twist, I go on a stage and teach rooms full of customers how to do paintings with different techniques.  I teach blending, format, style, texture,  and process during each class. 

What types of students have you worked with?

Young students from 7 to 13 years old and adults from 17 up.  

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I teach a monthly class at PWAT (Painting With A Twist) called "Paint Your Pet" where I actually do the charcoal drawings of customers pets onto the canvas and then teach the customers how to actually paint their pets in a realistic manner.  From using tonal painting and fur mapping of the hair of the pet.  This three-hour class is informative and fun with the customers leaving with a finished work of art.  

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Expect to work towards your end goal, don't' give up easily, but mostly pay attention to what you are learning and remember it with each lesson you are taught.  Homework is also a part of the learning process, so expect to do that as well.  Be serious about wanting to be taught and don't think that what you are paying is NOT worth the money.  

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Make sure you truly want to learn how to paint or draw because my time just like yours is valuable.  

Will these lessons be for a hobby or a career choice?

Are you going to take what we do seriously? 

Are you a responsible and dependable person?
