My experience as an artist and teacher has taught me that anyone can learn to draw and paint. As in learning any skill one must have the patience in overcoming hurdles, passion for the art and the commitment to practice. I teach in a fun and relaxed atmosphere because I believe this best promotes and motivates learning. I am flexible and upbeat wishing to guide my students forward into the mystery and beauty of seeing the world more deeply.
My goal as a tutor and teacher is to help my student(s) move forward in a direction that excites them. I draw and paint in a realistic way responding to the natural world as I see and feel it. In order to create what one envisions there is much learning, practice and experimenting to get on with. It is this love for the process, which is always more satisfying than the end result because to do art is to be alive in the midst of the moment.
I am currently employed by the Conshohocken Art League as an Art Instructor teaching drawing and painting. I have a private art instruction studio offering classes to children and adults. Also I have taught part-time for 3 years as an art teacher in the Methacton and Perkiomen Valley School districts.
