I love looking at art, reading about art and making art!
Art heals and the creation of it is I believe, empowering. My current practice is an expanding body of drawn and painted works that explore form through geometric, abstract, sculptural and musical languages.
From an early age, I grew up learning about art by watching my mother create. I loved the freedom and challenge that it provided me when I was young and over time have come to evolve and develop my own practice and language as an adult. In addition to art I am a Violist, Sound Designer and Composer and feel very strongly that the work I do visually has deep roots in sound and music.

Ollie is an excellent, supportive, and friendly teacher! This is my first time using TakeLessons, and I enjoyed my time spent with Ollie. He was able to give me technical guidance, but also allowed me to play around. I appreciate that he was able to customize my lessons with my personal goals, and even suggest local art I may be interested in. I booked a 1 hour session, and the time flew by! He also allows you to use his brushes and paints the first session, and then gives recommendations for paints/brushes based on your skill level and budget. Looking forward to booking my next lesson. Highly recommend.+ Read More
