I hold a BFA and MFA degree, and have over twenty years of drawing experience. Regardless of the final medium, all of my artwork begins with drawing. My tutoring methods involve designing exercises or assignments focusing on improving hand skills and accomplishing goals set forth on behalf of the student, making the medium work for you. I have experience in life drawing, technical drawing, perspective study, architectural rendering, illustration, and hand lettering, with a large variety of different drawing materials.
I hold a BFA in Studio Art, and recently received a Master of Fine Arts degree from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA), in Boston, where I have taught. I have almost twenty years of painting experience. My tutoring methods involve designing exercises or assignments focusing on tackling the student's identifiable weaknesses, expanding the student's breadth and depth of techniques and tools, and accomplishing goals set forth on behalf of the student, making the medium work for the student. I am most well versed in watercolor, gouache, and ink painting, but am also proficient with acrylic and oil.
