I have been a professional artist and photographer for my entire life. I have a degree in PreK-12 art. I taught preschool and middle school. I've taught for approximately 16 years. I can work with your schedule. My teaching style is to be helpful, teach by steps. My experience makes it better for students to ask questions or come to the lesson with suggestions. I am a student-oriented teacher who loves teaching. I can help my students to first learn, add to, and improve their artistic abilities. Students will then have the enjoyment of an artwork or photograph he/she is proud of creating.

I love the arts and photography. I like the creation process and experimenting with new techniques and materials. I love the arts for the way to show personal expression. I enjoy creating art and seeing the final product. Art and photography have been such a huge part of my life, and I want to share that with others in any way possible.

My work can be found on Facebook at ADVphotographyandart and on Instagram @ADVphotographyandart

I am also in the process of creating an Etsy shop.

    The lessons have been right on target for my needs. I feel like I’ve learned so much in my first 3 lessons. The breakdown of lessons has been perfect.

    Frequently asked questions

    We will meet for a first class for one hour to discuss what the student wants to achieve from his/ her class and and time. I will look at student artwork online if possible or have the student email me examples. We will work out days and times that will suit the student and continue from there.
