Anthe is an award-winning artist and graduate of The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
She has been teaching classes and private lessons since 1995 in a multiple medias. She is also an accomplished caricaturist who has been working since 1990.
Creating art and sharing it by means of teaching comes naturally to me. I believe in spreading the joy I get in creating with others and what better way to do it than through providing lessons.
Anthe really helped me prepare for entering college. Without her guidance my drawing and painting skills would not have developed to the level required to be able to handle collegiate level courses. She gave me the foundation I needed to pursue my passion as a professional artist.
I asess the level and the work by asking to see sketches or work they have created. If they don't have any then I have them start to draw a simple object to I can asess their knowledge of seeing. Once I have done that I take them on a journey of discovery. Working with the mediums they want to learn. I prefer to have the student learn to develop their own style and techniques so other than showing them how to use the materials and some examples I help them to develop their own sense of who and what they are as an artist.
I graduated with honors from The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts with a degree in printmaking and painting. I also sculpt and do mix media. I have always loved working with a multitude of materials and techniques to acheive interesting and unique works of art. I have also studied at Cleveland Institute of Art and Iconography through the Prosporon School. I have a well rounded education from the classical traditions through to the abstract personal expression that I create today.
