To draw is to be fearless. If you are interested in drawing from life, then I can assist by teaching you the basics or show you how to improve your skill set. I work as a professional artist and have a great deal of knowledge about materials and processes. I enjoy working in ink, pencil (graphite and colored), charcoal, and pastel (oil and soft). I am also into combining media. I have taught for over a decade and my students range in age from children to senior citizens.

About Sandy K.

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!

The first session with Sandy went very well. She was able to ascertain quickly the level of my daughter's skill and determine a course of action that will take her to the next level of her art. We are excited to see the result of the remaining sessions.

Sandy is encouraging, flexible, conscientious, knowledgeable, and highly-talented. She had the unique ability to meet me where I was at in my painting journey early on.

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.
