What differentiates us
Primarily I stand out from other Artist/Art Teachers because of where my heart lies while amidst teaching or simply guiding the client to there own inner potentials, as well as where I am during a project. I Allow my clients and myself structure, but flexiblity to be whatever they desire. I give the support and space for creativity to flow from a pure place. Allowing the art to unfold effortlessly. I like to encourage my clients to tap into their own creative imaginations. In doing so the art is a astoundingly beautiful and authentic. It is such a personal intern
I have a wide range of skills, from abstraction to realism and many hues in between. I received my Bachelor's in Fine Arts from The Oregon College of Art and Craft, a school that gave me background in modern, conceptual art. I've also self-taught with traditional techniques. I've heard it said that it takes 10,000 hours to become a pro, which is why I give my students a painting assignment from our very first lesson. I will get you started wherever you are in your level of experience. I'll help you learn to paint what you're looking at as well as develop your own sense of style when painting e

Hailing from cornfields of Canton, Ohio, Aaron made his roundabout-way to Portland, Oregon in 2007. He made many stops along the way from studying art at Atlanta College, to doing museum paintings in New Oreleans, to Austin living out of his car in true struggling artist form, to a quick jaunt to Alaska before landing in San Francisco.
Here he returned to his fine art education there studying under brilliant artists and having his own art featured in local galleries and going on to teach on the college level. It was here he dreamed up the idea to start his own fine art studio in Portland,
My experience with painting has been my whole life; both of my parents are painters. I teach in a very inclusive, dialogue kind of way. I want everyone to participate and communicate, however I realize that some people are on the shy side. I am very open to all personalities and all kinds of people expressing themselves they want to through their art. Everyone has something say, I want their voice to be heard. I myself am more on the quiet side, however I am also very goofy and silly. I use oil paints the most, it is the medium I have had the most exposure to.
If this sounds appealing to you,
I am offering Fluid Acrylic Pour Painting classes, only. I love being a professional encourager, it's very enjoyable to teach people easy and fun ways to open their creativity.

I take the guess work out of this form of expression and make it easy for all levels of experience.
Customer satisfaction my teaching experience to people of all ages, I have been a Proffesional artist since 1983 havie had apprentices that now are proffesional’s themselves ! I have thought to High School, Senior Citizens, and 9 to 11 year old groups with great success.
Tutoring sessions in my St Johns studio provide a unique and focused environment for all ages to begin or to develop painting and drawing skills. Here are a couple of students commenting on their experience with me:
“Not many teachers have Suzy’s understanding of the craft of painting, but what makes her unusual, I think, is her respect for you as an individual. No two people paint alike, and Suzy’s strength is that she doesn’t try to stuff you into a preconceived mold, come hell or high water. She figures out pretty quickly what you’re about, and helps you get where you’re trying to go.”
