Teaching Philosophy

Learning to paint isn’t about learning formulas or special techniques but rather learning how to see. While there are many technical aspects of painting the most important part of an artists development is to see the truth of the painted subject.

As a teacher I have the privilege of assisting my students clarify and strengthen this knowledge and understanding. Sometimes this learning requires words and sometimes a visual demonstration. My greatest joy is seeing the spark ignite in my students when the connects are made and this is why I love to teach.
