About this pro

My service stands out due to my extensive education in a wide variety of studio arts. I am adept at graphic design, typography, realism, abstraction, and expressionism, as well as well versed in art history, composition and color theory. I am very hands on with my teaching methods. During my time as an art instructor at an international art program, I honed in on my personal teaching philosophies. I truly believe that everyone has creative abilities that I hope to bring out. 

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up."

~Pablo Picasso 

The part of my job I enjoy most is getting to know my clients, and through tapping into their instinctive art styles. It is important for me to not only teach what I know, but also bring out the strengths in each artist I teach.

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

When starting with a new student, I begin with teaching the proper handling of paint and paintbrushes. I like to test their skills with a variety of techniques to see which they respond to most. We experiment with color mixing, light and dark values, textures, and brushwork. 

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

I have a Bachelor's degree from Colorado College in Studio Arts with an concentration in painting. I have experience working in an art studio, critiquing peers and teaching all ages and skill levels.
