I am currently retired, using much of my time sculpting, painting, printmaking and writing. I have learned from my teaching experience in city planning at the college level how much I enjoy working with individuals, exploring their interests and nurturing their talents so that they could be the best they can be. My primary objective is to build self-confidence by drawing upon the tools available through art to expand one's ability to better express one's personal passion through art.

Before accepting a position, I would like to meet with the student so that we are both comfortable that our working relationship is likely to be a good fit.
