Share with me in the satisfying thrill of art-making! I am passionate about opening people’s eyes to truly see the world around them, and then giving them the skills needed to express what they see. Observation of the natural world, mastery of artistic media and techniques, and study of art history all work together to provide a solid artistic experience.

Learning that artistic ability is within reach of everyone provides students with a confidence and excitement in their artistic endeavors, leading to a deepening understanding of the principles of art and a familiarity with a variety of artistic materials. With further exploration and sharpening of skills, students go on to define their own unique style.

I hold my B.A. in Art Education and am a state-certified art teacher for grades K-12. I offer private lessons and group classes. Curriculum can cover a variety of areas, including:

  • drawing – pencil, charcoal, pen & ink
  • painting – acrylic, watercolor, water mixable oil
  • plein air painting
  • color theory
  • art history
  • portraiture
  • principles of design
  • perspective
  • and much more!
