About this pro

I have been painting for forty years. I paint from life and have taught several workshops lately in acrylic painting. I also have some private students. I believe in keeping it simple. Big shapes, flat color, good composition. I can teach anyone to do a painting in two hours. I am a certified teaching assistant at East Providence High School where I work with special needs teens. I have taught at Newport Art museum art camp and my studio is on Main st. in Warren R.I.

I love painting from life,nature and I enjoy helping others.I like having fun when I am teaching. I try to encourage my students to loosen up and not be afraid to make mistakes.

Photos & Videos


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

I ask them how much experience they have and what they hope to learn from me. I will provide them with a photo to work from and we will paint a picture together each on his or her own canvas . We will paint outdoors if the student desires yo do so. 

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

I am a certified teaching assistant in East Providence, I am a student at Providence college where I will be receiving a Bachelors degree next year . I teach painting at Heartspot art center in East Providence and work with CORE, an after school art program in Tiverton.
