Overview

I am a retired Art Professor, professional gallery artist, and owner of the award winning SunDust Gallery & Art Center in Gilbert, AZ. I hold both Bachelor and Master degrees in art from the University of Tennessee. I believe that everyone can learn to draw or paint, and it is my job to inspire students to explore their creative side. I have taught at community centers, universities, community colleges, neighborhood associations, and in-home instruction in the arts. I am an art teacher that believes fun should be incorporated into lessons, and I build lessons around what students enjoy drawing or painting...dragons, cars, female figures, horses, landscapes...I have found that students are more engaged with the freedom to choose subject matter. The basics are taught in every lesson. Patience, Fun, Engaging, Grandfather personality creates a bonding between teacher and student that is memorable.
