I’m a painter and art educator. I teach graduate students, people who have never picked up a pencil, art school refugees who haven’t picked up a pencil in twenty years, theatrical designers, actors, carpenters, architects, musicians, stay-at-home parents, senior citizens, teenagers, bureaucrats, and engineers.
Whatever the student profile or educational environment, I strive to change people’s perceptions of their everyday visual reality, to impart useful and practical information, and help each person figure out how to use the information to pursue their own passion.
I am a lecturer in the Graduate Design Program at the University of Washington School of Drama and an Adjunct Instructor at Cornish College of the Arts. I’ve taught numerous painting, drawing, and multidisciplinary classes at Pratt Fine Arts Center, Gage Academy, Seattle Center Academy, Kirkland Arts Center, Bellevue Art Museum and the Museum of Northwest Art. I also organize private classes in my studio and beyond, and offer one-on-one mentoring and critiques.
