I am an award winning graphic designer and illustrator proficient in the Creative Suite. I also draw and paint in traditional methods including pencil, watercolor and collage. I currently teach drawing and painting to young children through ArtSpan in Lexington. I provide students of different learning styles and needs with a safe and encouraging learning environment. My philosophy of art education is based more on experience with a rich blend of materials and exposure to many artistic styles to express the student's life observations rather than teaching projects with pre-produced, pre-determined, finished products. Self expression, experimentation and building a strong visual vocabulary are my benchmarks. I encourage individuality, offer critiques and demonstrations for every class or session. In addition to teaching at ArtSpan I hold a BFA from Maine College of Art and work as a freelance illustrator and art director and have exhibited my artwork throughout New England. I am willing to travel to my students or they can come to my studio for instruction. My lessons and tutoring will be adapted based on the students abilities, age, learning style, and individual wishes. Professional portfolio and references available upon request.
