Passionate about drawing and painting, I studied classical drawing and painting for several years in the oldest active atelier in Europe, the Charles Cecil Studios in Florence, Italy. Now a professional artist painting and teaching in New York, I enjoy painting people, still life subjects, and interiors. I have taught the classical atelier methods of drawing and painting for the past 12 years to students of all ages and abilities, and have learned to meet each student where they are- from absolute beginners to established professionals.
In person instruction is available in plein air, and in painting the figure en plein air. Click underlined below for more info.

Online instruction is available in portraiture, still life, and anatomy. Click underlined Patreon link below for more info on studying weekly, biweekly, or simply watching the pre-recorded tutorials that I offer.
Questions about what studying online might look like? No problem, it’s as easy as can be. Just take a look at the video below, to see a random class that I have conducted.
I now teach online private tutorials in beginner drawing, still life, portraiture and constructive anatomy. Lessons will involve critiques of 1 – 3 works of art. In which you will email the piece you are working on and then we will schedule a 30-60min critique over the computer using Zoom.
During the tutorial, I will digitally draw and explain my suggestions, assist in art material selection and also give you direction as far as what projects you should pursue to increase your skill level. I enjoy relaying the knowledge that I have, to those that are interested.
