Why I Teach

Over the years as a professional artist and instructor I have developed workshops and classes to fit the requests and needs of artists.

In my continuing quest for excellence in my work and yours I offer new classes, workshops and venues.

My job is to accelerate your education. I teach at a number of venues in Idaho and Oregon and often other states when an organization contracts a workshop for their artists.

If you don’t see a Class or Workshop I teach in your area, you may be able to schedule one by Contacting me Here. I also have an online critique available for a personalized class.

I look forward to working with you to take you to the next level in your art.
