We feel so lucky to have found Matt! He helped our child create a portfolio for high school auditions, and now that our child is in an art high school, Matt continues to be a wonderful mentor and teacher, with the perfect mix of knowledge, patience and passion. Our child is always in a great mood after a lesson with Matt, and we're grateful for the care he takes and the breadth Matt has as an artist himself. Thanks, Matt!

Matthew was extremely knowledgeable about the art of painting and was able to provide insight into the artist's intentions that affected our decisions to varnish and hang it. I recommend Matthew for similar help and will contact him again for future projects.

Matthew instructed me in the techniques of acrylic mixed media painting on canvas. He is a great instructor with deep subject matter expertise. At the same time, Matthew ensured that I maintain my individual style of expression through the painting. I would highly recommend Matthew for all painting or art instruction needs.

Matthew makes drawing easy to start and less scary for people with no experience. I’m definitely more confident to dive into art world after session with him.
