Hi, there!

My name is Emily and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2015 and have loved helping my students become more confident in their abilities, push themselves creatively, and make beautiful works of art. I went to Texas Tech University in Lubbock and earned a Bachelor's degree in Studio Art with an Emphasis in Painting and Drawing in 2011. I have been a practicing artist since I graduated college and actively exhibit in Dallas and the surrounding areas. I'm a genuine and fun-loving person with a down to earth way of approaching art. My teaching style is casual, modern, and tailored specifically for what you are looking for.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals! Please let me know exactly what your expectations are!

Affiliations

Girl Scouts of America
Aug 2016

It began over 100 years ago with one woman, Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon "Daisy" Low, who believed in the power of every girl. She organized the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, and every year since, we've made her vision a reality, helping girls discover their strengths, passions, and talents.

Today we continue the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.

We're the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs for girls from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to do something amazing.
