Painting And Drawing
I received my MFA from Columbia University where I also teach Painting as an Adjunct Professor.
In my classes I emphasize two things: creating a new way of seeing, and practicing accuracy in what you see. We move through exercises that develop creativity and work through the fundamental technical components of making a drawing or a painting. Each class builds upon the tools we've developed from the last so students come away with a comprehensive understanding of art making, rather than a step-by-step formula. We work together to not only increase technical proficiency and achieve specific goals, but to develop the confidence to make art anywhere the mood strikes, whether it be painting at your kitchen table or sketching in a coffee shop or a hotel balcony.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Each 1 on 1 program starts with an hour introduction session where we chat about what you'd like to get out of class, your background, and my instructing approach. We do a few exercises to see where you're at. This is a great time to show me work you've made before or share ideas of the kind of work you'd like to make. These online classes are best for those who need flexibility and lessons that meet them just as easily at the apartment coffee table, a hotel desk, or a porch upstate. Create from anywhere.
