To draw is to be fearless. If you are interested in drawing from life, then I can assist by teaching you the basics or show you how to improve your skill set. I work as a professional artist and have a great deal of knowledge about materials and processes. I enjoy working in ink, pencil (graphite and colored), charcoal, and pastel (oil and soft). I am also into combining media. I have taught for over a decade and my students range in age from children to senior citizens.

I want to help you to become a better artist and have fun while you’re doing it! My style of teaching is to tell you about powerful ways to approach your drawings that will boost your technical ability as fast as possible. In other words, I’m going to help you to make your art look like the thing you’re drawing. But I won’t rush you through it! We’ll take as long as you need to get a good understanding of the most important aspects of the lesson. We can focus on what you are most interested in learning about. Want to learn how to draw faces better? Or maybe improve your proportions for drawing a full body person? Pets, landscapes, still life, it’s your choice because I work for you. Each of these are unique subjects, but there are certain fundamentals that apply to all of them which I will help you with to give your drawings more of a “pop out” look! Some of those things are learning to see values (light and dark), negative space, and how angles and relationships of different elements in your drawing can show you what’s working and what isn’t. For more advanced students, we will hone what you’re already good at and talk about different ways to make your drawings stronger and more accurate. There are some great tricks that can make the drawing process easier and faster, and we may go over some useful materials for you to try as well. I would love to show you how to make some major progress and start drawing like you never even realized you could!

Excited to learn how to draw what is in front of you accurately? Want to be able to draw anything you like? Have you been curious about what you can use to draw other than just a plain graphite pencil? I am a professional artist, and I can help you develop your artistic eye and show you different methods and materials to achieve accurate but unique drawings! I'm happy to start from where you are, even if you've never drawn anything more than a stick figure. Send me a message to see if we will be a good fit!

There are so many reasons to learn to draw. Perhaps you are applying for college and want to strengthen your portfolio? Maybe you changing careers and need to strengthen your visual thinking? Or you may just want to learn to draw for fun. Whatever your reason is, I can help. I have been teaching drawing for 20 years and I’ve worked with students of all ages, from young adults to retirees. There seems to be a notion out there that “one must have a talent for art before they can learn to draw. ” One thing I can say for sure is that this absolutely NOT true. With the right knowledge, a strong desire to learn, and a willingness to try, anyone can learn to draw. I teach students how to draw from a classical studies background, but I believe in nurturing the uniqueness of each student and honoring their learning style. Unlike a classroom setting, a private lesson frees us up to build the lessons specifically around the student's goals and needs.
