Hello there! I've been teaching painting and drawing to children for over 15 years and adults for over 6 years. I am a traditional oil painter and watercolorlist but have worked in several other mediums such as prismacolor pencil, india inks, charcoal, graphite, air dry clay, plaster relief and more. You can take a look at my websites to see what I have done.
I just love bringing the love of art to others and how it can bring a calmness, peace and creativiity into their lives. Everyone needs a chance to be creative and I'm so greatful for the opportunity I've had through the years to influence others in this way. It is therapuetic for me and my students!

We will first have a detailed conversation about the student's experience and what they are interested in learning. They are welcome to come work with me in my studio privately, in a class or workshop or I can travel for private lessons to their home.
I worked with a local artist learning oil painting and watercolors from him for over 12 years. I've been teaching for over 15 years. I have a degree in Biology and love to incorporate what I know about plants and animals into my curriculum.
Adult lessons are typically $15 per hour plus your supplies. Children lessons are $12 per hour plus supplies. There may be additional charge for traveling to you.
I started teaching a few neighborhood children and now I have over 50 students a week! I started my business and website officially in 2009
I've worked with children ages 2 through 18, and adults of all ages. I have had kids with disabilities such as autism, down syndrome and ADHD. Some have experience while others have never picked up a paintbrush before.
Find the teacher that you believe will work best with the skills you are interested in learning. If they have a certain style you'd like to learn than that is terrific as well. But many teachers with experience are very versatile in the styles and types of paintings or drawings they can teach so sometimes that doesn't matter as much.
