I like to draw everything so I have a wide knowledge base of a lot of different aspects of art. Photography, pencil, watercolor, acrylic, how different brands perform.
I educate myself with hours of YouTube on different techniques. I like to treat my art studio space as a laboratory where I can experiment with different creations. It’s always an ongoing learning process.
I am super adaptable I can sit with a 4 year old and explain art or do plein aire outings and draw nature scapes with friends. And lead them through how I would approach the subject matter. My teaching style is “flow” there’s no rigid one way of doing something correctly.
For more examples of my work please see my pixels webpage and Instagram for my weekly sketchbook practices. I enjoy teaching people the fundamentals and brainstorming about different art techniques. I have taught classes at Blue Skies Art Studios for 2 years managing a group of children ages 3 to 10 and up to 10 students in a class. I pay particular attention to learning style and adapt accordingly. Now for adults I can manage the same with empathy. I prefer to use multimedia in my own work.

I like to sit down with a new student with art media and talk about their goals. What kind of art job do they want in the future or are they pursuing it as a hobby. What kind of media do they like to work with and which artists inspire them to create. I also like to take the time to initially talk to them to learn their study style and look at any portfolio work they have done.
I have been an artist for 20 years. It’s second nature to me. I have worked at an art studio with children each with different learning styles for 2 years in Redmond, WA. I am self taught. I spend hours watching crafters and artists on YouTube.
I charge 50 dollars for 1 hour. Then half for each additional hour.
Teaching just comes naturally to me. I want to persue my degree in teaching English as a Second Language. I’m good at listening and watching people in their process.
My studio experience is with a group of about 10 children ages ranging from 3 to 16.
