I believe that great freedom comes from knowledge. A thorough grounding in the technical and aesthetic elements of art is the foundation that allows the mature painter to focus on experimentation and personal pictorial goals. During my formative years, I was fortunate to find incredible mentors who offered me their knowledge and guidance. It's a pleasure and a privilege to be able to do the same for a new generation of students. 

I teach a variety of classes in Los Angeles including life drawing, constructive anatomy, head drawing, costumed drawing, painting fundamentals and long pose figure painting. For current listings and to sign up, please contact me at
