METHOD BEHIND THE MADNESS!
I provide a space (both online and/ OR in person) for mind and body exercise.
My method supports the individual artist’s instincts, rather than limiting their creative impulses by pushing general principles and being instructional.
We work with:
- Experimentation is encouraged.
- The inner critic: IN THIS SPACE NOTHING IS WRONG EVERYTHING IS AWESOME
- Left brain/ right brain flexibility.
- Developing observation skills and coordination.
- My classes are project-orientated.
Skills that follow are:
- Drawing, painting
- Eye-hand coordination
- Self-driven creative expression
In the words of Mark Rothko:
“Art-making is a universal form of expression—transforming one’s emotions into visual experiences that everyone can understand.
Expressiveness is fragile. When art teachers assign projects with strict parameters or emphasize technical perfection, this natural creativity can quickly turn to conformity. Great art teachers can help students become more self-aware, empathetic, and collaborative—and this generates better citizens in the long run. cultivating in his students a deep appreciation for artistic expression.”
Online Mentoring Sessions

We use a research process and open up to new techniques.
We work step-by-step together on how to make an idea come to life.
Thomas, who is an energy bunny, had amazing focus and completed this task in his 45-minute online session.
