I'm a professional artist and illustrator with a passion for teaching. I love teaching kids and have many years of experience in both public and private schools. I love teaching adults of all ages and skill levels and I am passionate about inspiring others to open up to the evolution of the creative process.
I have many years of private art training, from art lessons in my elementary school as a kid to private lessons and group workshops with master artists throughout my lifetime. My training has been versatile, as I am an artist with multiple interests, but my main focus is on oil painting-both plein air painting and studio illustration work. I am attracted to beautiful colors and the play of light and shadow. I paint in nature as often as possible, and on other days I work on turning landscape, figure and portrait skills into illustrations in the studio. I like clean color, strong brushstrokes and creating a sense of flow and movement in my paintings. My goal in each piece is to create a world that the viewer will yearn to enter. The process of finding a sight in nature or hearing a story that moves you, or of having an incredible dream or vision, and then step by step, making that come alive on the canvas, is my biggest passion.

Best teacher ever. My son had a major growth and awareness of everything he understood about himself. It even lasted untill his wedding where he could lead without any instruction since
She brought warmth and comfort to a group of people... And then she instructed and encourage each person to draw. Her atmosphere is amazing and she provided all materials and paints and ink and paper for free. I would say she is on my list of people who inspired my life. Thank you forever Rebecca+ Read More
