About this pro

If you are looking to begin, grow and develop your artistic practice, I can help. If you are looking to stretch yourself creatively, I can help. If you are "looking" and learning to "see", I can help.

I am every day, an artist. I am always creating. My work manifests itself in many different mediums and approaches. I am very aware of how scary an artistic life/calling can be. But, it has proven to be very exciting, rewarding and amazing for me once I learned to trust in my ability. I make art for love, for humanity, for the world. Whether you are wanting to paint as a hobby. you are creating a portfolio to sell your work or applying to art schools, I would like the opportunity to help you begin and develop your artistic practice.

FAQs


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

First, I like to have a verbal exploration with my new students. I want to know their background, goals, dreams, experiences, likes/dislikes, other hobbies, etc. Any information that helps me assess where and how to start with the student. Once this information is digested, I recommend a course of action and a schedule to help the student embark on their artistic goals. This first consultation is free and from there we can decide on a schedule and fees.


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

I have been making art since I was six. I have taught art and film at the college level for 18 years. I have a BFA in Painting and Printmaking from The Kansas City Art Institute, an AA in Computer Animation from The Art Institute if Dallas, an MFA in Painting & Graphic Design from Texas Woman's University, and a PhD. in Art & Technology from The University of Dallas. I can be your personal art professor.


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

I have a set price for each session, which is one hour and it is 75.00 per hour. If you prefer a regimented schedule, my painting classes are typically 6 weeks long, 6 hours per week. These classes are 3000.00 and include full instruction on theory and technique. It also includes starter materials. Feel free to contact me for more details.


How did you get started teaching?

I was working as a visual effects director and a friend asked me to teach an art class at a local university. So I did. And I loved it! I was hired full-time the next semester.


What types of students have you worked with?

All kinds! I work one on one with children ages 4-15 and one on one or in group settings with people 16 and older. As a college professor, I am versed in the art of providing group and individual instruction.


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

Make sure you work with someone you connect with and trust. It helps to like the kind of work they do.
