After many years teaching art in the studio and the classroom, both online and face-to-face, I have developed an approach for working with students that combines a comfortable, supportive and empathetic style with a dedication to the most scholarly content. My goal is to enable the student to find his/her own creative potential through regular dialogue and exercises designed to allow the student to develop technical skills with personal expression. With younger or beginning students technical skill is developed at a pace which allows the student to develop self confidence at the same time. Personal expression is nurtured gradually, as self confidence grows.

Art History will be given the chronology of the history of art, but, also a deeper understanding of the social and cultural events and the personalities of the artists which creates the changing nature of art through the centuries.
