I am a graduate of the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, where I received a full 4 year scholarship to study fine arts. I spent almost 10 years thereafter working as a freelance graphic and web designer, as well as teaching English as a second language in Germany.

Recently, I moved back to the United States with my husband and small children, and am now looking forward to moving on to being an educator in Massachusetts. I have already enjoyed teaching both English and Art both privately as well in a larger group settings and absolute love captivating the learner.

My strongest skills are in painting, drawing, composition and layout.

In addition I possess expertise technical knowledge in Photoshop and most DTP applications. You name it, I've used it!

Also, I am fluent in both written and spoken German.

I look forward to meeting you!

I have a BFA from the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, where I received a full four-year tuition scholarship based on my painting and drawing abilities. I have developed master knowledge of perspective, color, and composition. Since graduating, I have enjoyed giving private art lessons for adults and children.
As a painting teacher, I like to help the student rethink the way they are looking at subject matter, by helping them understand the relations that foreground and background space has with each other and how they can measure these difference against each other to build the images they want. Also key is helping the student understand how to mix and apply colors and their compliments in order to render shading, light, foreground and background.
