Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting and minor in Art History from Colorado State University
I am a painter, Illustrator, muralist, and instructor, currently working and residing in Colorado Springs. I teach numerous painting and drawing classes at Bemis School of Art at the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center at Colorado College, as well as at the Manitou Art Center. I have also taught painting at Cottonwood Center for the Arts, and teach numerous private lessons, and Figure drawing sessions.
Art has always been an integral and important part of my life. After putting myself through school, earning 2 Fine Art degrees, I lived in numerous cities throughout the US, always painting, but working a variety of jobs. Upon my return to my home town, with much determination and hard work, I became a professional artist, showing and selling my work, as well as teaching.
I believe that art brings all people together, as it helps us to express ourselves in a necessary, and even therapeutic way. Creativity is a calming, often challenging, and peaceful process for me. I am extremely passionate about Art and Art History, and look forward to sharing that passion and experience with my new students, and old, at the Pikes Peak Artist Collective!
