MY STORY

​“It has been said that art is a tryst,

for in the joy of it,

maker and beholder meet."

MY TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

​​

  • Anyone can learn to paint.

  • There is no substitute for hands on, one-on-one instruction by a qualified artist.

  • Creating art should be fun, challenging and rewarding. 

  • Art brings people together and nurtures our community.

  • It's okay to make mistakes. We aren't performing heart surgery here.

  • Mistakes are great  learning tools.

  • The only wasted paint is that which stays in the tube.

  • The studio is a sacred place.

  • Honor your creative endeavors. They are meaningful.
