“I like to bring art into people's lives. I find satisfaction in sharing my knowledge with others, so teaching comes naturally to me. I believe that everyone has a part of them that is creative, but in order to express that you need to develop your skills. Initially when you get into oil painting, the driving force is the excitement and joy of it. I then find that teaching in a natural way is the best thing by learning the basics. Later, when you’ll want to push and develop your skills my teaching will be technically more specific and tuned to which level you’re at.”
