Instruction

I teach acrylic painting and mixed media classes through the Asheville-Buncombe Community College's continuing education program. I also provide one-on-one instruction for artists seeking to ignite their personal practice, and I lead intensive workshops in self portraiture, plein air painting, and group critique.

As a painting instructor, I strive to empower each student to develop his/her own aesthetic perspective and personal style. I keep my materials list minimal, and emphasize basic tenets of color-mixing, composition, and brushwork.

I'm inspired by the materiality of paint and the myriad ways to use it, so I avidly research new techniques and artists to reference in my classes. I encourage students to take a process-oriented approach to their work, and I support creative and conceptual exploration at all levels.
