Drawing

I have my degree in art from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. I have been developing my drawing skills since I first picked up a pencil at four years old.

Photography

Sandra owns and manages a photography studio in my home. She has studied all aspects of photography in college including portrait and environmental lighting.

She is an expert at developing and printing black and white as well as color film and is equally experienced in digital photography. She will tailor your lessons to your needs from total beginner to experienced photographer trying to add new skills. She can teach you expert retouching techniques in Adobe Photoshop for perfect images.

Theatre

My method of teaching Theatre Skills includes developing the whole person. Before you can inhabit a role, you must know yourself. In this way, you are not "acting", you are being. My course of study can be used with beginners up to advanced. I offer intensive lessons for students working on specific projects or scenes as well as monologue writing and performance classes,

My experience working in film and theatrical productions as an actor and makeup artist allows me to know the industry from the inside out. As a playwright I have produced, cast and directed my works on stage. Let me share what I know with you.
