Artist

In my classes at The School of Visual Arts I endeavor to share my excitement and wonder of the natural world immersing my students in the rich and wild exhibits of the Bronx Zoo. I teach watercolor to provide them tools to document their journey in visual narratives.

I have taught similar workshops over the past 20 years for animators in major studios including Pixar, Walt Disney Feature Animation and DreamWorks.
