Private Classes, Mentoring and Open Studio Time

Private Classes


Perhaps you'd like to expand your color palette, try abstract painting or explore working with new materials, techniques and ways to combine them.


By focusing on exploration and process, you will strengthen your skills, develop a deeper understanding of who you are as an artist and express yourself more confidently in your work.

Cost: $35 per one hour class; bring your own paints and surface for painting. Additional materials to help you explore new techniques will be provided.



Private Critiques & Mentoring

I dwell in possibility.” —Emily Dickinson


Creating is more than learning and applying techniques; it's a personal process through which we are continuously evolving and growing. 

Mentoring sessions help with that growth. A facilitator listens carefully and helps you identify what's happening in your process, then also helps you come up with ways to stay motivated and take positive small action steps in the direction of your desires.


For critiques, please send an email to me several days before your scheduled session with some questions and several jpg images. We'll discuss what's working in your paintings, what can be improved and ideas to help you move work forward. 


Creating is a process of choice-making, taking action and refining, and each person's process is unique. Get to know what type of practice works best for you; knowing will help you build on your strengths and make more informed choices about your work and directions.

An introductory, free 20-minute session is available to discuss how we might work together in ways that will benefit your process.

Please email me at to set up your introductory session.

Cost: $70 per hour, can be divided into two 1/2 hour sessions.

My studio/gallery has 1350 square feet of space. I have my own studio space at one end and will be on site working when you are. You can work by yourself or with a close friend, partner or family member. Imagine writing, painting or crafting as part of your visit to the beautiful Finger Lakes region.

The gallery's location offers easy access to nearby lodging, shops, restaurants and breweries. The gallery space is comfortable, modernized, well-lit, with natural light. Wireless internet is available at the coffee shop downstairs. You'll have your own work table and chair, so you can spread out, relax and really get work done. The studio is safe, so you can leave works in progress right there at the end of each day.
