Hello Future Artists! I have been in the field of Art Tutoring/Teaching throughout my life. Even though I was a professional Fashion Designer in NYC for over a decade, on the side I always painted for clients and taught adults or their children Artistic techniques. I have a range of a skills set from Still Life, to Portraiture to Abstract. I have worked with Children of all ages, and even special needs Children for Art Therapy. My goal is for my student to have a cohesive portfolio or attained an enhanced ability from my tutorials. If you want to create Art of all genres, I will be glad to assist!

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.
I could draw before I could speak a full sentence. I've always drawn people, nature and abstract ideas and designs. I've drawn fashion illustrations for Bob Mackie, Betsey Johnson and Russell Simmons. I have recently created hand drawn lettering for Vanity Fair magazine. I explain basic principles about drawing to my students. From perspective laws, to varied differences in showing texture and detail. I show which materials work better for certain projects and for the outcome you want to create. As an artist I enjoy drawing and respect it as the core of art. It's your base. You must draw well in many forms to become a great artist.
Painting is the pinnacle of creativity for an artist. The use of color, composition, technique are just some of the obstacles that must be controlled as a painter. I use watercolor, oil, acrylic and gauche. I've created artwork for Rick Ross (rap artist), Vanessa Williams (movie star) and many clients in NYC, Atlanta and Chicago. My artwork was shown in Art Basel, and in Galleries in NYC. Teaching painting is a particular skill. I show students how to blend, create space and depth as well as classic techniques.
