About this pro

Do you want to paint or draw like a pro? I can help you discover your unique style and build your artistic skillset. I have over 25+ years of experience as a visual artist specializing in oil + acrylic painting and pencil + charcoal drawing. Since 2010, I have taught children, teens, and adults art lessons in the greater Philadelphia area.

I can introduce you to the foundation of portrait, figurative, and or landscape art techniques. I will introduce you to different painting and drawing materials and artists.  I teach all levels beginner, intermediate and advanced. 

I have a proven record of helping individuals build portfolios to apply and get accepted into art high schools and colleges. If you are an artist seeking to increase your exposure and marketing strategies I can help build your online presence as well as help apply for gallery exhibitions and artists in residency programs.

I studied Fine Art at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art and the University of Pennsylvania. I have my MS in Arts Administration from Drexel University. 

I have a passion for helping artists thrive and I'm looking forward to helping you with your creative endeavors. 

I love helping people thrive and reach their creative goals. Whether my students want to learn new skills, refine current skills, apply to art school or gallery exhibitions, I go that extra mile to help them accomplish their goals. I value helping others, creativity, and community and I can't wait to help you discover your unique style and skills.

    I first met Jenna when I was about 9 years old. I enrolled in her art class and immediately loved it. There I learned to paint, sculpt, sketch and mosaic under her guiding hand. She helped me to blossom as an artist because she created an environment in which her students felt comfortable to flourish and express themselves freely. I remained in her classes for years after and I really feel that she helped to foster and nourish my artistic abilities in to something great. She is absolutely one of the best artists with whom I have had the opportunity to learn from. I recommend her lessons to anyone that has even a slight interest in art because she is simply the best.

Make sure your teacher is confident, experienced and willing to go that extra mile to help you accomplish your goals. In addition, make sure they are friendly and listen to your needs.

Let your teacher know what you are trying to accomplish with your lessons such as refining your skills, learning new skills or needing help applying for a school or art exhibition. This will help your instructor create a path for you and help you reach our goals.
