About this pro

I have a Master's from the University of Southern California and am a Grumbacher Art Certified Instructor. I am an experienced and accomplished artist; I specialize in encouraging students to explore their own creative style while also learning basic acrylic painting, watercolor painting, drawing, colored pencil, and sculpting techniques. I have an unswerving passion for art and have been painting, drawing, and sculpting since age 12. I love art. My goal is for people to love art and to celebrate art.

For children, I aim to focus on strengths, while building new skills. Drawing, painting, sculpting, collage, and printing are areas for exploration and growth. For older children and teens, I aim to focus on developing one's own style with continued exploration of art technique. I also have experience teaching painting an drawing to adults, inspiring them to discover their passion for art! 

Age-Appropriate areas of instruction include: 
-Painting Techniques such as Layering, Mixing, Washes, and Glazing. 
-Understanding Composition such as Working from back to front; The painting matters, not the object you’re painting from; An odd number of objects in a composition tends to be more interesting than an even number; Off-center is more visually interesting than centered subjects; Visualizing where you want subject(s) to go before painting; Light (shadows and highlights). 
-Understanding Color Theory: Red/orange or “warm colors” bring things forward, blue/green, or “cool colors” send them back; Opposites or “complementary colors” on the color wheel; Painting with medium tones, so that highlights and shadows can be applied easily. Using multiple colors equals “depth” and “interest,” there are no pure colors in life! 
-How to Mix Paint: Mixing using the palette knife, brush, on palette, or on painting. 
-Drawing Materials and Their Uses: Pencils, Chalks, Charcoal, Pastels, Ink, Fixatives, Paper.

I have had many Solo, Group, and Invitational Exhibitions at several prestigious locations. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you or your children achieve creative success, strengthen existing talent, and develop new artistic skills!

I love working closely with my students to provide the foundations for creating art, as well as honing in on artistic techniques such as how to hold a brush or pencil, applying the right about of pressure, how to choose the right brush, etc.

    My daughter had a great lesson. Eddie was very organized and thorough. He started with the color wheel and by the end she learned about paints, brushes and began painting.
