Teaching comes naturally to me, as I love bringing art into people's lives and sharing my knowledge. My belief is that everyone is innately creative, but to better express it you need to hone your skills. Stronger fundamental skills will benefit anybody pursuing the visual arts, whether as a fine artist, designer, graphic artist, architect or sculptor.
I am a professional artist who exhibits my work in galleries in the US and Europe. I've been teaching art to people from all walks of life for over 15 years in San Francisco, New York, Berlin and now again in Carmel,
For 10 years I painted highly realistic and detailed layer paintings in the style of the old masters. Over the years my work developed into what is described as ‘Disrupted Realism’; still grounded in classical techniques, while mixing it up with abstraction and direct ala prima painting methods. With this background I am able to offer a wider range of lessons: Classical Painting, Oil Sketch Impression, Abstraction/Free Style.
