I am a professional artist. I've been studying representative fine art at the Art Students League of New York since 2013.
My students can expect to improve week to week in their drawing and painting techniques. While gaining knowledge of the fundamental principles of perception—light, plane-structure, tonal value, perspective, proportion—students will learn to construct images that realistically and accurately interpret objects in space. This solid foundation will enable students to express their personal creative vocabulary more clearly and effectively.
I teach students of all different ages and experience levels.
My personal passion is realism in classical and contemporary art but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better artist!

Mariana thank you so much for your generosity! I have always wanted to paint with oils but didn’t know how to start. The way you teach makes it very simple and fun for me. Will continue painting.
Lessons with Mariana were very helpful. I started as a beginner and she helped me to learn basic theory behind drawing, as well as to develop my skills and gain confidence. I studied graphite anatomical drawing and advanced a lot in that technique since we started a year ago.+ Read More
