About this pro

I believe in being a conduit for students to find their passion in creativity! I believe teaching is a relationship because there's an element of vulnerability that takes place when you are expressing yourself creatively. I take this VERY seriously. I'm self taught so "putting myself out there" and showcasing my heart and soul on canvas was scary. I'm here to encourage you to believe in yourself and diminish some of that anxiety! You can find a variety of work on FB, INSTAGRAM, LINKED IN, and/or my website Smallxpressions.com. You can also find me on the Sugarloaf Arts and Crafts Festival website!

I'm passionate about my gift! It's my sacred and precious to me! I use it not only to relieve stress, and to find my place of peace, but also to share that experience with others! I believe that I have tapped into my "happy place" by creating beauty and I would love to help others do the same.

FAQs


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

There is a brief survey/interview of what the student is wanting to accomplish, goals are set, and  an appropriate shopping list is established BEFORE our first session. This can be done via phone and/or  email. Then we would meet for the first time and let the creativity and ideas flow! Although I may be the "instructor" the pace and evolution of the learning experience will be dictaded by the student!


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

I am a self taught artist born with the gift of creativity! I love color and texture and have reviewed a multitude of techniques and developed my own way to create-I currently hold instructor led sessions at the Sugarloaf Arts and Crafts Festival every Spring and Fall and provide a Mobile Paint Party Experience for those who want to host a "Paint Night" at a venue of their choice!


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

My standard pricing is $35/hour


How did you get started teaching?

I've always loved to create-drawing, painting, Crafts, multimedia-all of these activities were self taught! I caught the bug in high school and have been a fanatic ever since! I had the awesome experience of attending a "Paint Night" event and I knew that's what I had to do! I developed a Mobile Paint Night experience and it evolved since then!


What types of students have you worked with?

All types! More recently it has been in group settings and I provide instructor led sessions at the Sugarloaf Arts and Crafts Festival since Spring of 2018. I have also provided Mobile Paint Night services since 2015.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

My favorite event would be my paint sessions I give at the Sugarloaf events! It's so exhilarating to me when those who are unsure about taking the classes leave with a smile on their faces and a new spark of wanting to start painting as a hobby!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

First and foremost it is a relationship that will evolve throughout your sessions so you maybneed to 'shop' for someone who you can feel comfortable with.

1) The teacher isn't there to tell you how to create but to bring out YOUR creativity.

2) A good art teacher makes you feel comfortable and encourages you to practice SELF-expression.

3) He/she will want you to think for yourself and make decisions and put a work of art together that belongs to you.     


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

What are your goals for taking these classes/lessons?

What medium did you want to explore? For example- acrylic, water color, oil?

How much time did you want to donate to these lessons ?
