One on One or Small Group Sessions - Zoom or In-person

Would you like a few focused hours or days on a particular technique or medium or a deep dive into pushing your work in new ways? Lets design something just for you! This can be as short as one hour or we can book several hours or days or even weekly sessions. We’ll talk and see what best fits your needs and schedule in accordingly. I love working directly with artists, honing in on their interests and strengths and building a springboard for artistic practice moving forward. These sessions are so rewarding!!
