I am a professional, multi-media artist who has exhibited in galleries in Washington, DC, Baltimore, Maryland, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and in New York, NY. From having gone through over two decades of personal art study in private art studios and in college, I have built strong drawing and painting skills, and have experimented with just about every medium you can think of. I bring this knowledge and skills to my art teaching which I have a done at Centreville Elementary School, Young Rembrandts, and currently, Make/Believe, US Arts Center, and Jimmy Potter's Studio. Through these programs I have taught drawing (from observational drawing to cartoons/stylized images), mixed-media sculpture, and pottery/clay to children ages 4-13 years old.
I believe in helping others develop their talents in ways that work best for them. I strive to teach and illustrate concepts or materials in as many ways as needed to deepen understanding and learning. From my experiences as a teacher and having gone through art education since I was a child, I understand and highly value patience, diligence, and creativity with learning and with practicing one's craft/art. If these values also align with your own and you would like this for yourself or your budding artist, please contact me for art tutoring!
I look forward to working with you and/or your child!
I am a multi-media fine artist whose strongest skill is in drawing. I have been classically trained in various private art studios and in college (Maryland Institute College of Art) for a total of about two decades, meaning, I am very capable of rendering images in a realistic/photographic style. I have experience teaching students of all ages and enjoy working one-on-one and in small groups.
