I hold a Master's degree of Fine Arts from New York Academy of Art, and have been teaching art professionally for over 5 years.

I am happy to work with anyone who wants to explore their artistic side, and gain new abilities in art. I am offering high-quality, multimedia fine art classes, including custom lesson planning specific to your goals and materials. I have taught both children and adults to enjoy creating art. Working with you to design a curriculum that will enrich your own (or your child's) abilities and life.

I am well qualified to teach advanced through beginner artists. I have worked in in many different mediums, and can teach a variety of styles Including observation and imagination - to create both realistic and abstract artwork. I specialize in drawing, painting (oil or acrylic) pastels and watercolor. I also offer clay, fashion drawing, design, iPad art, mixed media, collage, and stop-motion animation.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
