I have received extensive training and mastered techniques in painting, drawing and mixed media while attending the Maryland Institute College of Art. My studio practice was further enhanced and my knowledge of art history was honed while receiving my MFA from SMFA/Tufts University.
I work with students to build upon previous experience and abilities, while demonstrating new techniques to broaden their skill levels and enjoyment of art making. In addition, I guide students in the discovery of new artists and art that can inspire and inform their personal development as artists. My students are given the opportunity to build a specific portfolio or develop many different artistic styles/techniques. My specialties include the following: watercolor technique, acrylic painting, screen printing, oil painting, drawing and mixed media applications.

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.

Drawing

While receiving my MFA from SMFA/Tufts I was an instructor and TA at the MFA in 2010. I was responsible for group and individual instruction. The classes worked with various drawing media while rendering from observation, this included:live models, anatomy charts,floral displays and sculptures from the Museum collection. I have experience teaching basic design and color to adult students (35-75) and young students (5-7).I can work with students to develop personal styles and observational skills that will produce strong portfolios.
