Studio > My studio is a safe space to begin, begin again, or walk further on your creative journey

I will offer you an invitation to see, to look, to use your hands, to speak in color, and to practice trust. I will offer you an invitation to experiment, to explore, to try, to fail, and to remain present. Will you accept?

My classes require no prior experience in either painting or drawing. Instruction is specific to the individual. Beginning and ongoing classes are offered in an atmosphere that is conducive to experimentation, supported exploration, and encouragement. Each student spends time learning basic skills and then is encouraged to gradually move on to developing their own work from their life experience and personal interests.

All classes are held in studio 101B in the Troy Laundry Building at 222 SE 10th Ave, Portland, OR (Doors are locked, not open to the general public)

Classes are offered for $125 per session. Each session is 6 weeks long and includes 5 classes (one class per week) and one make up opportunity (the 6th week in the session is the make up class).

I do occasionally take younger students who wish to explore artistic materials and processes that they might not be exposed to in school. Please ask me about private lessons or small group classes and workshops for kids and high school students.
