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'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 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 look forward to helping you reach your goals! I have students of all ages and skill levels so don't have any hesitations about reaching out for lessons. Feel free to send me a message and tell me about your goals!

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.

Emily is great with my 10-yr old son. He has really improved in his realistic drawings which is what we were looking for with lessons.

Emily has really helped my daughter's drawing capability in a short amount of time. I can see an improvement in just 3 lessons! She is also very friendly and my 13 year old feels safe and comfortable around her. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their drawing skills.
