The traditional medium of oil painting has many different techniques and approaches. I work individually with each student to help them select the best mediums, brushes, and layering strategies to elevate their painting practice.

Teaching since:

I am a certified teacher in the state of Wisconsin and have over 10 years experience teaching art at the University level. I enjoy helping artists reach their creative goals through a relaxed and informative style of teaching. I teach both observational and abstract painting, drawing, and mixed media art. Current and former students have gone on to win exhibition awards, attend graduate school, and been accepted in to competitive art programs. I enjoy teaching artists of all ages from kindergarten to professional artists. I look forward to meeting you!
