About this pro

I am a graduate of MassArt and currantly teach at HCC. I am a professional illustrator. I enjoy getting students to the next level. I work with the how to get your painting to a more professional level. I enjoy working with portfolio development for high school students and with adults picking up a new hobby.

I love working one on one with students. Honestly, most of art is practice, so I love introducing concepts to students and seeing what they make of them in a few months when they get stuck. I enjoy teaching color theory and how to use composition in visual story telling.

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

I first have a conversation about what the student knows. Then the student brings in what they want to paint. We discuss how to get the best reference photos or how to set up still lives. Then I will do demos to teach techniques. Most learning comes from critiques and students questions.

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

I graduated from MassArt from the illustration department. I teach at HCC and work as a professional illustrator.
