- I teach dance and create choreography;
- I paint, draw and create quality digital graphic art for print and web.
I studied at the Colorado Academy of Art in the full time Foundation Program 2007-2008, and started training with a new studio founded by Michelle Philip, the Classical Art Academy, fall 2008 to present. Classical Art Academy
Classical studies have included sight-size and cast drawing and painting, anatomy, Barque drawing, life drawing, alla prima portraiture and Verdaccio technique. Click on "Drawings" or "Paintings" to view some of my art. I now have an art studio space at the ArtWork Space in Boulder, Colorado.
Tap and Jazz Dance Instructor
I am a professional dance instructor who has been dancing for 25 years and teaching for the last 17. I am an ATDI nationally certified Tap Instructor and I teach group and private lessons in tap dance. I also teach jazz dance and choreography for small and large groups. My national tap dance certification site and bio are listed in the "Dance Links" page. Check out the "Dance Photos" link at left for dance photos of myself and students.
I also direct the Community Dance Collective in Boulder, Colorado. We are a non-profit educational organization in business since 1984. We offer studio rentals for independent classes, workshops, rehearsals and informal performances. Community Dance Collective
I do independent contract work for small organizations, primarily non-profits. I specialize in illustration work and logo designs. I create brochures, flyers, ads and other materials in Illustrator, Photoshop, QuarkXpress and Adobe. You may see some of my work in the "Graphic Designs" album.
