    Super fun experience! I liked Mery’s flexibility to adjust to my needs and expectations and always finding a fun way to learn.

    Maria provided lots of materials that I hadn't worked with before. She also had many examples and was patient, helpful and kind explaining new techniques. She gave a lot of inspiration and it was so fun doing crafts together with her! Highly recommended!!




FAQs


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

I usually have a short interview to better know the student knowledge and expectations.

I explain the basics of stamp carving and all the uses, as well as the materials. The possibilities are endless!

I combine stamping with watercolors, acrylics, hand lettering, embossing, collage and more!


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

I'm a self taught maker and I'm also a biologist, which might explain why most of my inspiration comes from nature


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

Standard rate for a 2 hour art workshop is $50 including materials, or $40 materials not included, if the student wants to bring the materials herself


How did you get started teaching?

I first started making art lessons for kids. I love working with both kids and adults


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with elementary students and adults


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I really enjoyed my last event about card making, it was fun and the students were able to combine different techniques. Results were mesmerizing!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Take an interview and get the feeling of being listened to, and understood. Many people are very talented out there, but not many are able to teach.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students should think about their expectations. Many times it takes effort to see the results they are looking for. Don't give up after the first time, try again and practice a lot!
