From finger painting to oil painting or from Play-Doh to clay, I have been immersed in the arts since I was a small child. While simply fun and a creative outlet when I was younger, art has now become my profession as an adult, being both a working-artist and as an art instructor. After earning my MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in Studio Art, I have taught students from preschool to adulthood in subjects ranging from painting (acrylic, oil, watercolor) to textile to performance. Although my own art is created in mediums such as painting, collage, and installation, I have been trained in acrylic, oil, and watercolor painting and am ready to pass along the tips and tricks that I know to all of you. Regardless if the last time you picked up a paint brush was yesterday or if it was in preschool, you will be leaving with a one-of-a-kind work of art that you made all on your own. When you attend a Paint Nite with me, prepare for some laughter, some drinking, some painting, and most of all, a great time!
