I teach from the traditions of art theory with a contemporary focus. I focus my lessons on age level and technique during the start of the lessons. With advanced students, I encourage them to pursue their own stylistic interests and refine their artist research.
I am a teacher, artist, learner, and explorer. My higher education studies in the arts have taken me to Europe, South America and back again where I hope to share my inspiration on the arts with others like yourself. My students achieve confidence and progress their artistic results.
