About this pro

I teach a small class (limited to 5 dstudents) in my home studio one night per week. I've been a professional artist for 34 years, I started as a freelance illustrator and now have been painting commissioned portraits for over 20 years. I love to help other artists grow and learn. Three of my former students now have successful careers as professional artists.

    I studied with Phil for about a year. I fully recommend his teaching ability. I call him Dr. Phil because he could diagnose and fix my painting problems.
