Drawing

I've been making a living as a Fine Artist for over 30 years as well as teaching at the college level to elementary level for over 15 years. Will provide student references upon request. Many of my students who never drew or painted before learning from me have gone on to win competitions and receive art scholarships to first tier schools.

Painting

As a graduate of University of Houston, early Core Fellow at Glassell School of Art - MFA, Houston, I have been making a living as a Fine Artist for over 30 years as well as teaching at the elementary to university levels for over 15 years.

Depending on the level the student has, along with their particular interests, I can impart confidence and satisfaction while showing them how to express themselves visually. Many of my students have left my classes to win competitions and receive art scholarships to first tier schools.

Will be happy to provide "before and after" photos of actual student work upon request, as well as solid references.
