The essence of abstract painting relies on confidence and familiartity with art materials and willingness to explore. I will guide my students through a hands on approach to converting a daunting white canvas into a one of a kind, personal piece of abstract art.

My 6 year old daughter really enjoyed her online drawing lesson with Jessica. The lesson was well-structured and thought through. The materials Jessica picked were diverse and informative. I was amazed how Jessica made the online lesson seem as if she was right here in our house. I asked my daughter how many more lessons should I set up for her and she answered: many, many more! I strongly recommend Jessica to any student learning graphite drawing!

"There are many people out there that can teach you to snap a picture, but Sandra will help you learn the process of how to create a photograph. That is her strength, along with a gentle touch and her vast experience of working with some of the best photographers in the business. I strongly recommend you reach out to her if you wish to become a better photographer.

I had the great opportunity to work with Sandra. As my photo coach and editor, her insightful suggestions to the way I was approaching my work helped me sharpen my photographic skills and storytelling. Working with Sandra was all about honing my strengths as a photographer but also opening my eyes to other possibilities of storytelling and the craft of photography that helped me overcome my inexperience when creating a photograph."

"I've learned a lot of things from Tim while working next to him. When I finally set a side some time for a lesson I was very pleased. I learned how important taking extra time with my values while sketching was, and to take special care of how the light reflects off of the eyes of my subjects. Just thinking about these two simple things instantly brought more emotion out of my sketches. Tim is a truly skilled illustrator and designer but more importantly he has a gift for teaching and working with others to achieve a goal."
