I am excited to share my love of art with you and hope you grow and learn from each lesson.
I promise to pass on my knowledge and skills that I have learned over the past 27 years.  
Please know that if you have the will to learn, you will.  If you look at art in any form and have
a wish to be able to do that, you can learn.  You will learn.  It will take patience and won’t
look like mine or any other instructor’s until you put in your due diligence.  You will be
rewarded for your efforts many times over.  Each project is a learning opportunity and you
will evolve as you continue to learn and grow through your experiences.  I am blessed to
have you here.
