Encaustic Painting, Mixed Media, Collage, and Photography lessons in the greater Philadelphia area.

Methodology

I am a fine art photographer, commercial portrait and event photographer, mixed media artist and encaustic painter. I love sharing my love of art and knowledge with students who are enthusiastic about learning a new medium or expanding their knowledge.

I teach:

-traditional black and white photography techniques (shooting film, processing film, and darkroom printing)

-commercial digital photography, portraiture photography, event / wedding photography

-encaustic painting (the ancient art of painting with melted pigmented beeswax)

-mixed media art (collage, altered surface, photo manipulation)

-handmade book-making

-portfolio development (for any level artist or professional photographer looking for guidance to create a solid, cohesive body of work)

I teach private workshops from my home studio (or can come to you). I tailor my lessons to meet the individual needs or interests of my student.

Background

I've taught art and photography professionally at the college level for 7 years

I've also been teaching private and small group workshops for adults and children for the past 10+ years

I have taught private one-on-one lessons, small groups of about 5-10 students, and classrooms of about 30 students

I have helped my students pursue diplomas, further their career as artists, and develop a professional portfolio of work. My students have gone on to exhibit in the professional art work internationally. My photography students have also gone on to work in the commercial field.
