"I believe that intuition and feelings are paramount to art but that academic instruction is the key of your artistic education. I show clear concepts that apply to all and foremost I give you highly individualized advice that applies to you. I think that working from life should be the daily diet of representational artist but I also teach you how to work from photos and memory to get the most of every source."
