Equal to my passion for painting and creativity is my love for teaching. I strive to sense the particular approach or voice that uniquely fits each student. I sense that voice in students’ concerns, in their language and in the marks they make. My approach is a positive one, encouraging fun, risk-taking, celebrating achievements and nurturing an enthusiasm for the medium we are working in. 

I feel one of my strengths is an ability to reach students at any level, from novice to advanced artist.
