Lesson Details

Oil Painting

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
My beliefs about teaching and learning begin with my desire to promote acceptance through art. Art is a language of expression available and accessible to everyone. I enjoy using various media for beginners as well as advanced levels.
I’ve always been attracted to religious paintings of the 15th century Flemish and Italian Renaissance artists. The gracefulness of the form was rendered with a perfect balance. The exquisite technical execution speaks to me of the enduring power of beauty.
I have a tremendous appreciation for a contemporary art. However, I am drawn more toward the classic academic art style.

Teaching since:

Today I am a professional artist, educator and entrepreneur.

My paintings have been exhibited in galleries and shows across much of Ohio as well as Los Angeles, New York, Miami, and most recently, in Moscow.

From my early childhood I was exposed to an extreme diversity in cultures. Some of my early memories as a child are of me drawing and painting on all kinds of surfaces - whenever possible! Translation: Art is who I am; it is not what I do.

I am very fortunate to have had great teachers and mentors to help me understand the value of visual art and culture. I look forward to working with you on a lesson plan, and to see how you make progress.
