About this pro

I have been a professional artist for over 27 years and specialize in Hand Painted Wall Murals, Trompe Loeil, Kids Murals, Faux and Hand Painted Signs for commercial & residential properties. My 1st painting job was a window design for Easter and when I did that job I received over 40 phone calls… who new painting happy little bunnies could make such an impact. Since then I have been commissioned to do work for major companies such as Anheuser Busch, Entenmann’s, Sports Authority, Carvel, Taco Bell and many others. I have also been commissioned by several hundred business owners & home owners to do various projects including large scale wall murals, Faux finishes, Trompe Loeil, kids rooms and 3d custom wood cut signs.

 In addition to my qualifications and experiences listed above, I have taught art to students through my company and another art company.

Making people smile. Nothing beats the feeling you get when you create something for someone and you know they're going to be able to enjoy it for many years to come.

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

The typical process would include getting to know the student, seeing what their goals are, seeing what level they're at, and why they want to learn.

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

 I have studied art my entire life and have been a professional artist for with 27 years. I have taught in various areas that include one on one art classes, group classes, and leading as an art director for various plays and companies.

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

Pricing includes many factors. In order to price correctly and accurately I need to know the skill set of the student, what the goals are, the subject matter, location of the classes, and the medium. It is always best to speak on the phone... Then we really get the opportunity to learn what the objective is.

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching as a result of people asking me to teach them. :)

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with children... However, I predominantly work with young adults and older adults.

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

 Have samples of work you've done... Or samples of work you were interested in doing:)

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

1) why they want to do/learn art

2) what are there expectations

3) how much time can they dedicate to the classes... An hour a day, 3 times a week etc.
