As a graduate of University of Houston, early Core Fellow at Glassell School of Art - MFA, Houston, I have been making a living as a Fine Artist for over 30 years as well as teaching at the elementary to university levels for over 15 years. Depending on the level the student has, along with their particular interests, I can impart confidence and satisfaction while showing them how to express themselves visually.

Developing real artists - not just a babysitting service with cookie cutter art projects

Maureen is a talented artist and both of my girls taking lessons from her. She provides them with personalized instruction on sketching, painting and various art forms. They are learning fundamental techniques for approaching any art project they desire to tackle. They have grown as artists. They have thoroughly enjoyed every lesson and can't wait for their next one. Maureen has been such a blessing to our family.

Tammy, 9 lessons with Maureen

Excellent tutor! Very flexible hours and locations.

Our daughter absolutely loves her weekly lessons with Maureen! We are very impressed with everything she has learned so far. Not only is Maureen an excellent teacher, she also offers multiple locations for lessons and does everything she can to meet the clients scheduling needs. She is supportive, encouraging and a great artist too!
