I have been teaching oil painting for over ten years. I absolutely love teaching, and it's my ultimate goal to help you discover creativity you didn't know you had. I specialize in a teaching style that breaks complicated techniques down into fundamentals - just like musical scales - so that concepts are easy to memorize and can become intuitive. Once you know the basics, then you can play!
As a teacher, I believe in creating a friendly, open learning environment that fosters creativity, curiosity, and community. No matter what your skill level, I am excited to help you elevate your art and foster more enjoyable studio time.
As a fine artist, I have been painting in oils since 2009 and also have experience in a wide variety of media and mixed media. My paintings have been exhibited and collected throughout North America and have won numerous national awards.
