Hello Potential Student,
I have 10 years experience teaching a variety of art courses: observational drawing, figure drawing, painting, color theory and design fundamentals. I enjoy the creative process, as well as, developing my skills as a visual artist. I primarily focus on my development as a portrait painter. When I'm not painting, I'm tutoring art to pre-teens, teens, and adults. Being a part of my student's development and success is very rewarding. I feel confident that from my lessons and direction I have made an impact on their success in their professional life.
Over the past 10 years, I have worked with a variety of people from all walks of life. This experience has helped me develop into a patient and thoughtful instructor and better understand the needs of each individual.
You can be confident that your experience with me will be beneficial and I will work hard to make sure you get instruction that suits your needs.
All the best,

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.

I've been drawing professionally for almost 20 years. I'm an expert in figure drawing, but I have a solid foundation in the basics, and can teach someone to draw literally anything. I teach private lessons at Santa Monica's Paintlab. I also have taught at the college level: figure drawing, observational drawing, and perspective drawing.
I studied graphic design at the Columbus College of Art and Design. I have worked for over 15 years as an independent and for printing and retail companies as a graphic artist. I've taught a variety of graphic design classes at the college level, including: Typography, Collateral Design, and Illustration. I can teach at various skill levels.
I received a MFA from the University of Cincinnati for painting. I teach painting in acrylic or oils, private lessons or small classes. I teach at Paint Lab in Santa Monica as an independent contractor. I have also taught art as an adjunct at Glendale Community College, University of Cincinnati, and The Art Academy of Cincinnati.
