More info

Teaching Experience: Besides teaching workshops, I have taught at the College of Marin, UC Berkeley Extension, San Francisco Art Institute, Kennedy University, California College of the Arts, Center for the Book, National Institute of Art and Disabilities and The Richmond Art Center. I have also been a visiting artist and lectured at Rollins College, Orlando,Florida, Dominican University, Sonoma State College and Maine College of Art. In 2017, I have been invited to teach a workshop at the Sierra Nevada College, visiting artist program. Teaching is my way of passing on my knowledge and experience of being a working artist for over 30 years. I am passionate about art making and its process. I have taught all levels of Drawing, Painting, Printing, Collage and Mix Mediums. Making art can be challenging and exciting at the same time. I believe in taking risks and thinking outside the box. Letting go and keeping it fresh. Art Can Change Lives
