I have been creating stained glass since 2008 and teaching painting on glass since 2014. I teach all levels of glass painting. I have classically trained for 7 years under the direction of master Italian stained glass artists in Siena, Italy. My hard work has resulted in a unique artistic style and teaching method that positively enhances my students confidence in their glass painting.
My goal as a teacher is to share my rich knowledge of glass painting and to watch my students grow, and come into their own style as glass painters.
After your 1st lesson, you will have some pretty awesome & simple techniques under your belt. My artists advance quickly & come away with a sense of accomplishment. Lessons are scheduled to best fit to the student's schedule when possible. I am a very patient instructor and understands that each artist is unique with their own style and pace.
Materials/Tools needed for your first lesson. Please message me if you need any recommendations on where to find supplies online.
