About Steve

I received my foundation in drawing and painting at a fine arts atelier called The School of Representational Art where I also began my career teaching. The school's focus was representational art and that continues through my work and as the focus of my lessons. I view the visual world as a language of shapes, values, proportions, perspective and color and I love to share that with my students. My job is to guide the student to see the visual world clearly for themselves and then to translate the visual language in their drawings and paintings in a representational manner. My greatest joy in the classroom and in the tutoring session is when my students are able to translate the visual world in their works of art on their own.

I spend most of my professional time in the studio creating works for galleries, show and commissions. My work has been published in American Artist magazine and I exhibit nationally and internationally. I work directly from life and from my imagination. My work includes landscapes, architecture, figurative works and portraiture. As a teacher, I communicate information in a clear articulate manner. Students have told me that I am very patient, encouraging and removed any fears they may have had about drawing and painting.

Contact me anytime with any questions you may have. Teaching is something I love to do and I simply want my students to feel confident with their skills creating works of art.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing

I completed academic drawing training at an accredited atelier which is a school for fine art. I was offered a teaching position at this school upon graduating and taught there for 8 years. My teaching history of 14 years includes colleges, fine arts ateliers, art centers and private students. I have earned awards for my work and have been published in a national magazine (American Artist).

Painting

I have been painting for 14 years as well as teaching painting for the same amount of time. After successfully graduating at The School of Representational Art in Chicago, I was offered a teaching position by the owner and I taught for the following eight years. I have been teaching painting for a total of 14 years at various colleges, ateliers, art centers and to privates students in a tutoring relationship.

Very knowledgeable

I like Steve's approach to teaching basics of the art. It is really helpful and interesting way to learn. He made me be more motivated to study basics in order to progress with my level of skills. Looking forward for the next session.
