I am an artist with a passion to explore creative media, to learn and develop techniques, and to teach others the skills I enjoy. I have taught Acrylic painting for 8 years and other forms of creative expression since I was in college. I paint using the methods of Ural Mountain Painting, Tagil Rose Painting, double and triple loading of the brush and the One Stroke Method. Using these techniques one can paint a variety of subjects in both realistic and stylized approaches. I invite beginners and experienced painters to paint with me.
