“My philosophy in teaching is to develop the skills that will enable a student to adapt to whatever medium or trend is in order, by emphasizing basic painting and drawing skills and the need to practice them daily. I encourage students to experiment with different media and techniques, and try to broaden my own range of work through constant experimentation.”
