Drawing

LEARN ART FROM A MASTER!

I am a professional artist [fine art and illustration] for over 25 years.

My drawings and paintings have been shown nationally and internationally in solo and group exhibitions [on display with artists such as Ansel Adams and John F. Kensett]. My work is in the collections of the Corcoran Gallery of Art and The National Museum of Women in the Arts.

In addition to painting, I am a designer and illustrator and my clients include The Smithsonian Institution, National Geographic and The Nature Conservancy.

I specialize in Realism and can teach all aspects of drawing [light and shadow, black and white and color], composition [with its underlying principals of optics, geometry and algebra], through the process of execution of final art in pencil, ink, pastel and paint.

I have a BFA in Fine Art, Design and Art Education K-12. I apprenticed in graphics and illustration with architect Donal McLaughlin who designed the UN Seal and, following his tradition of mentorship, have delighted in passing on my extensive knowledge and skills to others -- pre-schoolers to adults.

I look forward to working with you!
