About this pro

I teach a variety of subject ranging from art, through cooking and even Photoshop.

I have been teaching painting for over 10 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of acrylic, oil, watercolor and mixed media painting and created their own beautiful masterpieces in landscape, abstract, still life and other subjects! Within the first few lessons, you'll start understanding the elements of art such as light, shadows, perspective etc. and as time goes on, you'll be able to paint like a pro! I love working with students of all experience levels. 

I also teach cooking from scratch with the best ingredients. Be it Asian, Mediterranean, Middle-Eastern cuisine; I teach them all and more. I even teach to bake bread with my own home-grown sourdough starter. So, please join me for a fantastic session and learn some basics or other skills that only chefs know. Once we have cooked a delicious meal, we sit together and enjoy it over a glass of wine or whatever you like. As an option you may take home the remaining portions, usually enough for 3-5 days. But you don't have to. You only pay for the food you eat which is a fraction of a restaurant meal and yet much better. 

If you are looking for a Photoshop instructor, search no longer. I have been working with Photoshop for over 10 years and can teach most applications but prefer to teach it to photographers of all levels. Simple or complex image processing, layers, composites, beauty editing etc. I demystify them for you so that you can print or share your images that shine.

    Renata is an excellent teacher.

  • Amelia Rhodes

    Renata is an outstanding artist. She has taught me that watercoloring and oil painting is an "Art Experience". How amazing it is to place strokes of oil paint on canvas and majestic mountains appear. This " Art Experience " is an exciting thrill.

    My husband got me oil painting lessons with Renata for Christmas. That was the best present he ever got me. I love painting with Renata. She is very skilled and patient. She taught me the basics and fundamentals of oil painting and got me painting me first oil painting in no time.

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

I discuss the needs and interests of my prospective students, assess the level of their expertise and in make suggestions based on their answers/needs. Each student has her/his own needs and yet art requires some knowledge of certain fundamentals which I teach in a user friendly manner. I believe that understanding the mediums characteristics and properties enables students to set realistic expectations for their future creations. 

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

I have a degree in Fine Arts and have been teaching watercolor, oil, acrylics and drawing for over 10 years. I also participate in advanced workshops to develop my own skills and gain more knowledge.

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

My pricing is set on hourly basis. If I have to travel to my student's location more than 15 minutes, I charge a little extra depending on the distance.

What types of students have you worked with?

I teach adults at any level.
