As a teaching artist, I offer my services to inspiring venues in North San Diego County. Whether it is in a classroom, through an organization, or private home tutoring, I help children and adults understand and thrive within the creative process. I teach beginner and intermediate students technical art skills in a lighthearted and supportive way.
