I have been an artist studying the visual arts since I was 6 years old and have shared this love of the arts with children and adults, either as an employee, self-contractor or a volunteer. I am a graduate of Pratt Institute where I majored in graphic arts and illustration and received a BFA. I had attended Elkin Tyler School of Fine Art of Temple University and I am a Life Member of the Art Students League in NY. I have experience teaching all ages, children to adults. At present, I am tutoring art to students, one at a time, ages 9-12 years and one adult. The lessons are one-on-one, for several hours in their homes. I have had a one-woman show of my work in Wellsboro, PA. and have sold my artwork at exhibitions. My students learn to see the world like they never have before and to open up their creativity. I teach all levels, from beginner to advanced, having fun and learning new skills.

Start warm up exercises before each class Start with drawing after setting up a still life: learning values, shading, and light source, composition, line, focal point, perspective, negative and positive space (building an art vocabulary). For the more advanced, learning to draw the figure, anatomy and motion. For the beginner, learning basic shapes and using a light source.

Landscape drawing and seascape, weather permitting, drawing in Plein Aire (outdoors). Learning the difference in light outside and interior light and the colors inside and outside. Perspective.
