If you're looking for help with your drawing, painting, art history or photo manipulation with Photoshop, I would be happy to help you achieve your goals.

I am a graduate of the masters of fine arts Program at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. I am originally from NC where I received a BFA in painting and drawing from the University of North Carolina Greensboro.

Currently, I teach foundation drawing at Tufts University, I have taught the class for seven years. At the Museum of Fine Arts I teach painting, figure drawing and drawing for adults and teenagers. In the past I have also taught freehand drawing at the Boston Architectural College.

I have taught teenagers and adults the fundamentals of drawing and painting. An understanding of drawing is at the core of the visual arts, and I can help you gain an understanding and proficiency with whatever drawing or painting questions you have.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Photoshop

I have taken several classes in Photoshop and have used to extensively for photo manipulation for photography and documentation of artwork.

Art History

Through my undergraduate and master's art degrees I took many art classes and have done a lot of research into the history of painting and contemporary art.

Drawing

Drawing is a fundamental part of understanding and creating visual art. My artwork and teaching is focused on drawing and I have taught beginners and aided those who are more advanced. I can present you with lessons that will quickly speed up your drawing progress and improve your observational skills. I can demystify the drawing process and break down the steps that are hidden in many finished images. I have also taught classes that dealt with contemporary artists using drawing and other media, so I continue to challenge you with ideas for the growth of your artwork after you have gained the fundamental skills.

Painting

I have a BFA in Painting from the University of NC Greensboro and an MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. I have also taught adult and teenage painting at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston for the last 5 years.
