Learn to Draw / Paint - Various Dates and Times

Since 2011, I've guided hundreds of people on their artistic journey, teaching them how to draw, paint, and tune into the beauty of the present moment.

I've given them the gifts of self-discovery, self-expression, and a peaceful way to connect to their soul through the world of images, colors and creative flow. 

I know from experience that anyone can be an artist.

I've seen the transformation happen again and again.

If you love art, and you are curious and open to new possibilities for yourself, then I invite you to join me on a beautiful journey to explore the world of art creation!

Beginner and intermediate level drawing and painting instruction. In your home or office in the Phoenix, Arizona area, or (coming soon) online.

Rate for private instruction is $75/hour (recommended lesson is 2 hours). Travel fee may apply.

Group classes may also be available at your location.

*The art studio closed in June 2017. I am only able to teach at your location currently.

Please inquire through the Contact page.
