I worked as a celebrity photographer for Splash News Agency ,something I consider to be top paying as far as street photography go. You must know your camera or could miss the money shot. After studying photography and receiving my BFA I found out that I had an imagination for conceptual photography and an eye for candid shots. I incorporate photography into my fine art paintings. I’ve traveled the world teaching kids to use there eyes .(The Venice Dream Team) and ( See it to be it) were two organizations I’ve worked with teaching photography. Nikon has been my choice of equipment since the 70s,yes I do know film ,darkrooms and papers as well as digital. My self I am a hands on learner and I believe a teacher should have patience and that people learn differently. I’m a great listener

I have studied and practiced various forms of calligraphy and am very experienced in these styles of calligraphy: modern calligraphy, hand lettering, brush lettering, faux calligraphy, and beginner Copperplate calligraphy.

See photos in profile to view my work!

I specialize in teaching students the basics of calligraphy and building the necessary skills to develop their own personal style and create designs that they love! I also teach Ipad calligraphy using the Apple pencil. In addition, I teach students basics of scanning and digitizing their artwork to create designs such as prints, mugs, shirts, greeting cards, and more.

If you’re a beginner, you can expect to cover the basic strokes of calligraphy and receive practice sheets and resources to practice on your own and develop your personal style. I will also recommend best supplies to use to begin your calligraphy journey. You will soon be able to create beautiful calligraphy handwriting and designs on your own!

Esther is the best piano instructor one can ever ask for. She is very patient and takes the time to make sure your child captures and understands everything. I would recommend Esther to anyone and everyone!
Diana
Ms. Esther is a great teacher! She was very patient and explained everything very clearly to me so that I could understand. I’ve had multiple piano teachers, but she was the first one that helped me really progress in playing piano and understand music theory. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a piano teacher.
Julie
Esther is passionate and knowledgeable about music and she does an incredible job of sharing that passion and knowledge with her students. She instructed my two young boys in a music class along with 6 other young students. She was always prepared and taught the class a variety of musical instruments and the history behind each of them. She instilled a love for music and instruments, into my boys. We were sad to have her move so far away but the knowledge she passed along to my boys, is priceless. We highly recommend Mrs. Esther!

She has a very confident and calm teaching style making the session very enjoyable. I certainly would recommend her to others looking to get back into painting or further their skills."
