I believe in the power of art to change lives. I have been working as a professional artist for several decades and I love what I do. My work ranges from murals to intimate portraiture. My resume includes National Endowment for the Arts funded public art projects, solo exhibitions and museum shows. My drawings, paintings and mixed media works are found in both private and corporate collections.

I enjoy how the act of art-making improves lives. If a certain subject matter moves you, then we will begin there. I emphasize craftsmanship and solid technique. My work leans towards realism. If you are interested in learning anatomy for artists, still life, landscape and generally working from life, then I would be a good fit.

My lessons take place in my studio. I have been teaching for over a decade and enjoy watching my students develop. Some of my best moments have been helping students build successful portfolios for entry into higher education.
I look forward to meeting you and seeing your work!

Sandy was amazing! It usually takes my Rocky a while to warm up to new people but he took to Sandy immediately. Rocky was asking when he can have her back as soon as she left.

Lesson Details

Acrylic Painting

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

Students can expect to focus on learning a good foundation. I am familiar with several different approaches when working with acrylic paints. They include but are not limited to; direct painting, graphic approach, building up of layers using glazes and dry brushing. I also sensitive to the surfaces acrylic is used on; paper, canvas, fabric, metal and wood are just a few.
