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

Understanding what they want, and what there goal is.  Being honest in my ability to reach thier goal, or if I feel they would be better with someone else.  I am easy going and enjoy when a person learns something new and that moment they get it.  

I am currently teaching at the Plainfield Senior Space, South Plainfield Adult School, Covenent House, Individually, and at Michaels. 

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

Most of my education is self tought. When you send me a proposal I try and ask what is your goal.  If your looking for paint n sip style painting I call it, or one stroke,  I can do that.  If your looking to learn body parts or more art skills, I am not your girl.  I don't want to mislead you.  
I am putting together a porfolio that you can find under photo albums on

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

The pricing can vary depending if I am purchasing the supplies or the student, and also the number of students.  As well as distance of travel.  

How did you get started teaching?

It started with alot of volunteering.  Teaching scouts, children and adults.  Then I became an instructor at Michaels, at the Library, as well as at a senior housing development.  In addition to many independent jobs.  

What types of students have you worked with?

All types, all ages, all abilities.  I will tailor the class to the needs of the student. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I enjoy working weekly with Seniors at a senior living facility.  

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Compatability with the instructor.
