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 studied drawing intensively at UNCA and WCU. Drawing classes I took include 2-D Design, Life Drawing I, Life Drawing II, Drawing I, and Drawing II. I also have taken many Printmaking courses, which are based upon a drawing foundation. I primarily draw realistic subject matter. Materials I use for drawing include graphite, charcoal, conte crayon, colored pencils, and pastels. I will work with each student and design a course of study catered to their wishes.
I earned a Bachelor of Art degree at UNCA with a concentration in Painting and Drawing. I took several classes at AB Tech in painting. I also earned a BFA in Art at WCU. My first degree involved classical training and my second degree involved conceptual training. I have taken three intensive workshops with professional painters: Stuart Shils, Catherine Kehoe, and Rebecca Crowell. I have experience with oils, acrylics, watercolors, and gouache. I have worked in many styles including Realism, Expressionism, Surrealism, and Abstraction. I have knowledge of color mixing, incorporating mediums, composition design, glazing, impasto, and many other techniques. I have experience painting subject matter, including people, still lifes, animals, landscapes, and more. I am passionate about painting and am eager to share my knowledge with others. I will guide my students in their preferred medium and style.
