About this pro

The setting for my lessons and workshops is a barn a stones throw away from grazing alpacas on an Historic property. This makes for an environment abundent with insparation to paint. We often paint outside next to the stream or in a field surrounded by Alpacas. If woodland scenes are your passon, we got that. Histoic archetecture, no problem.  I specialize in painting on a variety of surfaces and with over 25 years teaching experience I am sure I can help you succeed with your passion.

I love working with people of all ages. Teaching what I know and watching student succeed is so rewarding. I personally draw inspirtion from what my students produce which intern makes me a better artist.

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

First I find out where the student is in his or her art education. Then I explore themes or subjects that the student wants to paint. All work is done from life or photographs so I can see what the student sees and help to capture the image in paint.

I am interested in helping you develope your own "style" which will present itself as lessons progress.

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

I hold a BFA from the Pillidelphia College of Arts which was renamed The Philidelphia University of The Arts. I have 25 years teaching experience in private schools, after school arts in local schools as well as private lessons, homeschool groups and adult workshops.

How did you get started teaching?

I actually began teaching when I was a child in 4H. Learning about an art medium and then teaching it gives me such a wonderful sense of pride.

To inspire others is amazing to be inspired by my students is invaluable! 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have experience teaching all ages and abilities.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Knowledge of different types of painting products is really key in am painting instructor. I am a big believer in using the type of paint neccessry to achieve the desired "effect". Knowing how to maipute different mediums is key.
