I am currently accepting students! I teach drawing and painting of all levels to both youth and adults out of a sunny studio in downtown Beverly. I have taught art both in the studio and in the classroom for a number of years and look forward to working with you!

Please get in touch with any questions at, or book a meet and greet or your first lesson here!

(please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding social distancing and COVID precautions)

Check out the FAQs below.

  • Who?
    I am currently teach private lessons for students ages 8 and up. That includes adult learners! I teach to a wide range of skills for those just starting their artistic ventures to those preparing their portfolio for art school applications. If you would like to meet me and visit the studio before committing to lessons, please feel free to book a free 15 minute "Meet the Teacher" session available on the booking page.
  • When?
    I teach during the school year, and adhere to the MA public school schedule (holidays, breaks, snow days). I generally teach in hour long slots, weekly or biweekly, Tuesday through Friday, anytime between 9 AM and 7 PM. You will be able to view my availability when you schedule. Slots will fill up fast, so schedule your first lesson to snag your ideal days and times!
  • Where?
    My studio is a bright and peaceful room located in a building of professional art studios in downtown Beverly. The building is equipped with restrooms and elevators and on street parking is readily available. If you are interesting in remote learning options, please contact me directly at
  • How much do you charge?
    I charge 50.00 per lesson per hour. If you book a bundle of lessons, I offer a discount as seen below! For private lessons for one student: 4 class bundle...$180 8 class bundle...$360 16 class bundle...$700 Please contact me at if you would like to schedule a lesson longer than an hour.
  • Do you offer group lessons (groups larger than 2)?
    Yes, I do offer lessons for groups at a slightly higher rate per lesson per hour. Please contact me directly at if you would like to book lessons for pairs or groups. My maximum capacity is 4 students.
  • I don't want to take classes for the whole school year, but I would like a refresher in drawing or painting. Can I take just a few lessons from you?"
    Sure thing! I can teach a refresher course for you. I would recommend scheduling 4 lessons with me. Book your first class, and we can schedule the rest at that time.
  • What are the lessons like? Will I be drawing pictures of fruit every week?
    Don't worry, you won't be drawing fruit every week (unless you really want to!) I prepare projects and lessons based on learning goals and favorite materials, and I work with each student to discover what they are most interested in learning. My greatest hope is to help you to develop your own style and have fun, but sometimes I will throw in a few challenges to help you develop your technical skills!
  • I'm in! How do I sign up?
    Yay! Here's how to sign up: 1. Book your first lesson on my site. You will be charged $50 or $80 depending on your learning arrangement. This amount will go towards the 4, 8, or 16 class bundle that you choose. 2. Book your first class for a time/date that regularly works well for you. There's a good chance that I can set aside that time and day of the week for the remainder of your bundle if you would like. 3. Come to your first class! Bring some favorite drawings and some learning goals. We will schedule the remainder of your bundle and take care of bundle payment during the first class. Parents, please expect to stay for the full hour of the first class. I will have seating readily available.
