I am a professional painter and teacher with many years of experience, and host an on-site gallery. I love guiding folks of all ages in learning -- or relearning -- skills in painting and drawing nature. It is amazing to see the transformation, as students learn mastery of tools and techniques, and take home their own artwork! I learned from masters -- Max Ginsburg, Sebastian Capella, Don Demers, and the École des Beaux-Arts, ENSAD, Art Students League of New York, and La Jolla Arts. I'm a Finalist in ARC, and have an MA with Distinction in Digital Media from London Met.
