Why I Teach


I have been painting for over 30 years, but about 15 years ago I decided, perhaps I’ll share some of the tricks I’ve learned with a few of my art students – could be fun??

Well, little did I know how much I would enjoy it! I had to beg my wife to let me start some classes, since I was already painting every waking hour. She said, “No way!” I promised I’d give her all the money if she said yes – a legendary art school was born!

So, I’ve painted hundreds of class paintings and seen many students go from a struggling beginner to award winning artists. I love teaching and interacting with the students. It’s fun, inspirational, and I actually learn new things as I strive to articulate what the heck I’m doing!

I hope I can help you find that “artist within you” and teach you everything I know. If you just – RELAX,  HAVE FUN,  and BELIEVE, YOU WILL DO GREAT!
