Teaching Philosophy
As a painting instructor, I emphasize basic tenets of color-mixing, composition, brushwork and drawing. I provide a supportive space for students to develop technique and experiment with process. My goal is that students enjoy themselves while experiencing the regenerative and therapeutic qualities of art-making.

My videos and workshops introduce students to various mixed-media techniques, conceptual approaches and artists of differing disciplines. I advise students to create something every day and embrace a "process over product" attitude. There are no "failures," only opportunities for discovery. By adhering to a regular studio practice students will ultimately develop a singular creative perspective for themselves.

I regularly host livestream painting sessions on my YouTube Channel and I teach acrylic painting and mixed media classes through the Asheville-Buncombe Community College's continuing education program. I provide one-on-one instruction for artists who would like to ignite a personal practice, and I lead intensive workshops in self-portraiture, plein air painting, and group critique.
