Introduction: Hello, I am Marie, an oil, watercolor painter, woodworking sculptor and art instructor. I graduated with my Bachelors in Fine Arts with an emphasis in painting in 2009 and I have been an active professional artist ever since. My heartfelt focus is to provide classes that are specific to the individual, to open up their imagination in drawing and painting they never dreamed possible. In consideration of health and safety with the coronavirus, I am now offering my instruction solely through video conferencing. These virtual individual drawing and painting lessons are offered to ages 9 and older. Each drawing class is custom to meet the individual where they are, with exploration of inspiration, imagination and goal setting. For more information on me and my artwork, my website (listed above) is a great place to find examples of my paintings and sculptures. Thanks for your interest and consideration! Warmly, Marie

Marie has been working with our 11 year old daughter on Zoom for the past few months. She is enthusiastic, kind, supportive and a wonderful artist. Our daughter looks forward to her lessons every week. Marie has a very kind nature which makes her approachable and has helped our daughter feel very comfortable learning challenging drawing techniques. Her sweet nature has helped our kid get out of her comfort zone and learn cartooning -not something she ever considered before! Marie is also punctual and thoughtful about timing (flexible), rescheduling etc. We recommend her highly!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Individual drawing classes are offered for $35 per one hour of instruction. Individual painting lessons are $60 per one hour.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The first class is a meet and greet, with introductions from both parties. I enjoy giving the student the opportunity to talk about their work, what subject matters interest them, their inspirations, other artists they admire, etc. We then start every class with a warm up activity to loosen our drawing muscles and ease us into the process, this activity can also be a form of meditation. Then the beginning lesson ensues...

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting with a Minor in Art History from the University of Kansas, 2009.
