About this pro

I love working with all ages and all skill levels in a wide variety of mediums!

I've loved art since I was a very young child.  My mother is an incredible artist and she loved nothing more than passing down her talents to myself and my sister. Now I teach others and continue passing down the passion for creating art. Nothing brings me more joy than seeing a students inner artist come alive.  It's definitely my true calling in life!

    Ellen is an absolute and incredible teacher. She teaches with passion and knowledge but also with patience and understanding. She makes things fun and approachable, but also leaves the learner with new skills and abilities. I would highly recommend her to any and all students.


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

I spend the first lesson discussing their specific goals and what they hope to get out of lessons. Then I usually have them create something on their own while I watch and asses so that I can see where they're at compared to where they want to be. Then I develop my lesson plan based on their needs.

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

I've been trained in many artistic mediums since very early childhood. Much of what I learned came from my mother, who is an immensely talented artist. I also took art classes at U of H Clear Lake for many years. Then recently trained under another painter during my time as a studio assistant, where I was really able to refine my skills and gain experience as an art teacher. 

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

Individual lessons typically start at $25/hour. However that may change depending on frequency of lessons, whether or not the student provides their own supplies, etc.
