A Bit About Me

For years I spent my days learning classical realism painting and in the evenings I taught wine and paint classes. I felt that there was a missing link between these simple one-off classes and the rigorous four year program. I am starting this program so that painters of any skill level can simply show up and learn how to paint from life in a fun and social environment. I want to connect new and experienced artists around Maryland and help connect the community.
