- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate
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!
I have been creating commissioned portraits and other pieces since August 2014. Most of my work can be viewed at this website:
