About this pro

I have over 25 years of experience creating art lessons and teaching art to people of all ages in the NYC area. Sharing my passion for art and extracting my students creativity is a rewarding experience.

It's exciting exposing students to art. It's especially gratifying when students make a connection or a new discovery about themselves through their art.
