Do you have a need to learn to paint with oil? If so maybe I can help you. As a professional painter and teacher I have given workshops and classes to teens as well as adults. I can teach you from imprimatura to vanish the process of creating a formal portrait wheather in my studio or yours. I also offer groups workshops within your space.

I can also give lessons within my studio on a 1-to-1 basis or online within a mentorship type program tailored to your needs.

School Programs

As an artist I feel it's important to give back to the community whenever possible, but as a First Nations artist I believe that it is important to educate the youth of today with authentic knowledge and experiences so that real reconciliation can take place between the Indigenous (Onkwehón:we) and the non-indigenous people of Turtle Island.

I have worked with YRDSB since 2014 bringing both art, cultural learning, social issues and traditonal oral stories to the classroom.

I've also taught more advanced highschool programs based on the classical European methods of oil painting.
