Teaching Philosophy

Like a preacher, a teacher should be all about offering hope. The teacher is a resource for the student to help form and expand his/her knowledge. I firmly believe that I can teach anyone to draw as it is an intellectual activity. As to painting and the other art forms, I demonstrate how frequently and then encourage the student, not to mimic me, but to allow their own personal marks and expression to take form in their work. Teaching itself is a gift and a skill and one I enjoy as much as creating art! Students can expect to gain learning about themselves and their own path of development. They can expect an encouraging and fun environment in which to do this. Critiques are positive, insightful, and honest. They can expect to develop their own skills of self analysis.

Artist Statement

My work is a great deal about painting outdoors and representing the human figure. Both have been a lifelong joy of discovery, beauty and experimentation. I tend to be more realistic than abstract but this realism or impressionism is born out of chaos first, full of personal marks and experimentation. Expert craftsmanship is a continual goal of mine. I like the expression "being a master means one knows how to fix their mistakes."
