Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

Working together, one-on-one, I will tailor my lessons to you, your skills and your goals, covering the foundational skills of working in oils. We will cover value studies, underpainting and glazing, wet-in-wet direct painting, color mixing and theory, portraiture, landscape, still-life, painting from life and from photographs, brushwork, and many other topics, including anything that is of special interest to you. I will also cover the properties and selection of the right materials. I can bring your painting skills to the next level, whether you consider yourself a beginner or an advanced artist.

Teaching since:

I am a graduate of Dartmouth College where I completed a Major in Studio Art. I work both in oils (painting) and in several drawing media (charcoal, graphite, colored pencil, pen and ink, etc.). My work has won several awards and been exhibited throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire. As an exhibiting member of several art associations (including the Wellesley Society of Artists, the Dedham Art Association, and the Malden Sketch Group), I am active in the Boston area artist community. I draw and paint everyday. I attend figure drawing sessions at least twice each week to keep my skills fresh. In my personal art practice I specialize in portraiture but I occasionally dabble in landscape, still life, or whatever catches my artist's eye. I find the creation of art an amazingly fulfilling pursuit and I enjoy sharing my passion with others.
