About this pro

The most important thing that I learned in my MFA program is that to excell in any arts discipline, you must master the basics of composition, form, value and color. That is the philosophy that I apply to all of my students, whether they are children or adults, cartoonists or painters, the foundations of great art are the same. 

I have been teaching in schools for ten years. I left public school to get my MFA in visual development and now I am working as a full time artist and private art tutor.

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

I always start with getting an idea of where they are and where they want to be (ie; comic artist, watercolor artist, muralist etc) then I develop a curriculum around my student's goals that allows them to work new technical concepts while simultaneously building a professional portfolio of finished pieces in their field. 

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

I was a teacher for ten years before becoming an artist and I have a Master's degree in art and visual development. 

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

I charge by the half hour for lessons and provide in-class supplies which is rolled into the  price of each lesson. You can choose between hour and half hour sessions based on your schedule. 

How did you get started teaching?

I've always had a passion for teaching. Through high school I worked as a tutor and continued tutoring through my undergrad. I taught elementary school for a long time before deciding to follow my passion and pursue a career in art. I am always excited to have the opportunity to mix art and teaching. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with a wide range of ages from kindergarten through high school, although the bulk of my time teaching was spent working with kids on the autism spectrum. 

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

Find somebody that you feel comfortable with. Art is about taking risks, if you don't take risks you won't grow as an artist and if you're not comfortable with your teacher it will be harder to truly take a risk.
