Teaching Philosophy
As a realist painter I teach my students to paint what they see and not what they think they see. My goal is to challenge my students to integrate colors, shapes, and lines and to develop a sound foundation in their interpretive and creative endeavors with an artistís eye. Cultivating good drawing techniques, composition, and evoking emotion through ones work is an integral part of the process. My workshops are in a relaxed atmosphere with demonstrations and gentle personal guidance. Everyone progresses at their own pace with their own goals. The pastel journey is about fun and exploration.
