Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I am a rising senior undergraduate at Gonzaga University, double-majoring in Art and Psychology Research. I am a longtime art lover and creator, and am eager to share my artistic skills and tips to improve your drawing skills and creative confidence!

Students can expect to learn the basics of shading, perspective, value, and line. For beginners, I aim to strengthen your technical abilities so that you have the confidence to "play" more with your art: to use fewer references, pull from your imagination and create more intuitively.

For more experienced drawers or simply those interested in jumping ahead, I am happy to provide more specific lessons on drawing the human form in the medium of your choice: graphite pencil, charcoal, colored pencil and/or ink. I also have experience drawing dogs, if this is of interest!

Teaching since:


I am an Art student at Gonzaga University. I love drawing people, pets, and quirky illustrations! I currently serve as the Editor of Gonzaga's Reflection Journal, the annual publication of art and literature.

I have sold small illustrations and signs at the my local farmer's market in Everett, WA for the past two summers. I also sell an array of quirky and whimsical stickers on Redbubble. In my work, I try to strike a balance between realistic commissioned portraits, punny pictures, and whimsical characters.

I typically find inspiration in interesting faces, childhood nostalgia, fairy tales, the Pacific Northwest. I am excited to work with students and embrace the mutual process of learning, growing, and finding inspiration in each other's work!
