I am a fine artist, and I love introducing students to painting. I have been teaching painting for about 6 years. I have taught at the Art Lab in Broadripple, Carmel Community Monon Center and at my studio in Zionsville. It has been my experience that anyone with a desire to create can learn how to paint. I introduce the basic concepts of color theory, color mixing, composition, and demonstrate the different techniques and tools to enjoy painting.
I enjoy seeing beginner students develop their confidence as they improve their skills. After learning basic techniques through a series of excersizes, I encourage students to come up with their own project ideas and to paint subjects that they love. I have many students who have stayed and continued painting and are now in my advanced class.

Classes begin again this January 2018. Contact me to enroll in a class. Right away I have new students become familiar with the texture and feel of the paints. I like to go over color theory, we do a series of color mixing excersizes. Students learn how to use complementary colors, analogus and monochromatic colors. Then we start the first of 3 or 4 small still life paintings, using a limited palette of colors.
I studied Architecture and minor in fine art. After 10 years working in the field of Architecture, i decided to dedicate myself to my family and my love of painting.
