I provide one on one art lessons for all ages in my home studio. I also provide virtual art lessons for youth ages 9-14 to build creativity and set the foundation for entrepreneurship. I use the skills and experiences that I've gained as a visual artist and entrepreneur of an art-based business over the last 8 years. For years, I've found fun and immersive ways to teach foundational skills in the visual arts, as well as creative problem-solving techniques through art parties for children and adults. I've often been told that I have tremendous patience and that I'm a great instructor. My groups leave with artwork that makes them proud! I look forward to growing with you.
What I enjoy most is creating an opportunity for people to disrupt the monotony of everyday life and push through perceptions that can sometimes limit us. The most fulfilling part is watching people do something they had no idea they could do. All this magic happens in such a joyous and free-spirited atmosphere that we have the power to create. Can't beat that!

When working with a new student, I make it very clear that proficiency in the visual arts is about the process, not the end product, although you will surely make art that you are proud of. I believe it's important to begin with a sound foundation for understanding the basic elements and principles of art and design, and how to apply them. I also believe in project-based learning in which the artist is able to exercise freedom and restraint in order to develop technical skills and a unique style.
I have expressed myself through the visual arts for as long as I can remember. I received a high school diploma with an art endorsement from a prominent visual arts school, and later went on to earn an associate's degree in graphic design with a 3.9 GPA, securing a full-time job before graduation. I eventually went on to start my own business, beginning as a face painter, and later expanding in ways that allowed me to share my skills and experiences with many others.
I provide one-on-one lessons at my studio for $65 per lesson. Discounts are available when you book multiple lessons at once. I also instruct for 6-weeks at a time through my virtual academy. Students, age 9-14 receive one-on-one guidance as well as group coaching, multiple lessons each week, and several projects. The total for 6 weeks is $197. There are 45 lessons in the 6-week course, which balances out to less than $5 per lesson.
I have worked with every group from children as young as four years old to a group of women celebrating their 60th birthday. I work with beginners as well as intermediate and advanced level artists.
