Bio

I have been a professional artist and teacher since my teen years. My mother is an artist, and when I was a youngster I inherited the paintbox her father gave to her when she was seven years old. I was blessed with the good fortune of attending really good schools and having great teachers. As a student at Rhode Island School of design, my creativity was consistently pushed by the creative classmates with whom I worked. I always was teaching painting, even as a student, I taught...

I have been a professional artist and teacher since my teen years. My mother is an artist, and when I was a youngster I inherited the paintbox her father gave to her when she was seven years old. I was blessed with the good fortune of attending really good schools and having great teachers. As a student at Rhode Island School of design, my creativity was consistently pushed by the creative classmates with whom I worked. I always was teaching painting, even as a student, I taught summers in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, where my family owned an inn. I have taught painting to young and old, all over the world. It is my delight.
My style for teaching is completely hands on. I give my students some very basic instructions in the techniques of watercolor painting (in this case, although I am versed in oils, acrylics, hand-painted furniture, and tiles, as well), in the first few lessons, and then we do plein aire painting, which is painting on location. This is the techniques used in the late 19th century by great french masters, and my favorite type of painting. We will leave from my place and paint on location, architecture, flowers, and landscapes. There may be times for life drawing/painting in watercolors. I am versed and a master in these techniques as well.
I am also a Yoga instructor.
