Artist Coach/Instructor/Offers

I offer individual and group art coaching and classes.

I am a working artist. I bring to my teaching and coaching a depth of art experience. I enjoy working with creative people. I am enthused by the joy of each artist’s process. Together, we can discover where you want to go or continue your pathway, breaking through where it may feel there are barriers. We can find the spark, ignite the spark and kindle the spark that is precious and a source of great joy.

Student:

“It is fun to know there is so much more possibility than I realized. {I am} noticing more possibilities as I go about life; watching light differently… I feel the desire to continue this exploration. That is the most important part. Thanks for the part you have played.”
