Make Learning Fun

I believe art should be FUN! The ability to create should be joyful and rewarding, and I want to help make it easier for you!
I work out of Tijeras, NM and offer private or semi-private art classes. I have taught ages 5-70+ and have worked with students of all skill levels. I offer classes in various drawing materials, watercolor, acrylic or oil painting. My goal is to share with you the fundamentals of realistic drawing or painting, focusing on observational skills and technique, so you may apply it to any creative project.
You will learn basic tools such as describing form, shape, line, lighting, composition, and colour mixing. Lessons are customized to your individual needs. Students may decide to work on personal projects or ask for tailored assignments. Students are asked to bring their own materials.

Virtual lessons via Zoom are also available.

Are you already a working artist
but feeling alone in your studio? 

Feeling stuck on a project? Let me help you! 

I was fortunate to have private and group art instruction for over 12 years. Regardless of skill level, feedback from others is invaluable. A fresh pair of eyes can elevate your project to the next level. 

Critiques for individual works or portfolio reviews are available upon request. After receiving images of your work, I will schedule time for an in-depth call or Zoom meeting, and provide a written review.
