I teach both Beginning Watercolor and Beginning Pencil Drawing classes (Adult Education) at a local technical college. I am primarily a realist painter, working in watercolor but can also paint in an impressionistic style. I can also teach in mixed media(Ink & Watercolor). I teach different techniques which can be put together to finish an accomplished painting. I can custom style my teaching to meet your needs. In drawing, I teach you how to draw from real life, from a photograph or from your mind. I can teach the raw beginner or someone who wants to brush up on their art skills. I am also a working artist and do various art shows throughout the year, and have my own art company plus a web site with my art on it.
