I have been taking a weekly private lesson with Chris for the past few months. I enjoy my class so much and have learned a lot from Chris. She is very experienced, knowledgeable, personable, and patient. I do not have to panic whenever I made an unexpected mistake on the canvas as a beginner in oil painting as Chris will always have a way to let me make it right easily. She takes a flexible approach and makes sure the class is an enjoyable and relaxing experience in addition to learning the techniques. Overall, Chris is a great art teacher and I feel lucky to find her.

Professional and smooth transition from start to finish. Contractual negotiation was fair, agreed upon in a written format and delivered on-time. Preview photographs and stages of piece were available throughout. Would highly recommend.
