I love painting and I love teaching others to be comfortable with their own creative visions.
For the first few paintings we trace images. The idea is to get to painting without agonizing over your drawing. Once your painting confidence builds then we begin working free hand from our imaginations or other reference materials, and your drawing automatically improves on its own.
Appreciating color and design in every medium, with both beginning students and experts is wonderful. Encouraging creative thinking, and visual sharing is my passion.
