About this pro

My artistic and painting style can be best described as abstract and improvisational. What I propose is that we unlock something for you, practice unpredictability and the notion that there are no wrong brush strokes.

Letting the paint and the mind flow within the practice of creating opens into the exploration of brush techniques, other modes of application and discussions about colors. This flow is the meditative benefit to painting. But in the end my goal is to cater the lessons into the direction that the student would like to learn.

Teaching and learning something creative is empowering for both the teacher and the student.

FAQs


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

My artistic and painting style can be best described as abstract and improvisational. I also have a habit of placing something recognizable in the forground. Usually Trees. I Love My Trees. What I propose as an instructor of private lessons is that we unlock something for you, practice unpredictability and the notion that there are no wrong brush strokes.

This where I start with students. Letting the paint and the mind flow within the practice of creating an abstact canvas opens into the exploration of brush techniques, other modes of appllication and discussions about colors. Dropping into the flow is the meditative benefit to painting beside creating a thing to look at and the sooner we can get there the better.

This also gives the teacher / student relationship a chance to develope. I get to learn about the students personal and creative interests and more details about what they would like to learn in future lessons. 

My goal is to be able to cater the lessons into the direction that the student would like to lean.
