In this class, the goal is for you develop into the best artist you can be. Here you will have the freedom to paint in your unique and individual style while learning various art techniques along the way. Gentle constructive criticism will help you grow as an artist and art viewer. All you need to do is bring in your supplies and subject matter. Whether you're painting with acrylics, watercolors, oils, or pastels, let's paint together! If you don't want to paint, drawing is fine; bring your pencils, charcoals, and markers. Let's explore two-dimensional in all its forms together! This class is recommended for intermediate level art students and up as it is an open studio style class that offers instructor help, not initial lessons for beginners.

I've spent the majority of my life in the Atlanta Metro area. One of my earliest memories is seeing the King Tutankhamun exhibit when it toured the U.S. back in the eighties. I have enjoyed art all of my life, and I love traveling to paint and see the works of other artists. Right now, my goal is to paint at McMurdo research station in Antarctica.

I graduated from Georgia College & State University with an undergraduate degree in art in 2003 and a master's degree in secondary education in 2008. Now I'm combining my two loves, teaching and art, by becoming an instructor at Spruill in 2022.

I'm a colorist, and I'm primarily interested in vibrancy of hue and texture. I work in a number of different mediums including: watercolor, acrylic, alcohol markers, oils, pastels, and more. I like to explore and mix mediums as well. My favorite subjects are birds and flowers. My favorite artist is Eugene Delacroix, a 19th century French romanticist painter.

Fun fact about me: I studied watercolors in Paris, France during university.
