Private Consulting & Painting Sessions

Do you need help planning a project or fixing a specific technical problem? I can help! I now offer private consultations and assisted painting sessions a few days a month to fit your schedule. Take advantage of one-on-one time with me to customize your own course and work at your own pace.

Examples of topics you might want to cover include:

  • Assisted painting, where I can offer a combination of learning techniques and creating finished works
  • Practicing specialized techniques such as incorporating photography or painting on paper
  • Mastering fusing with torches for faster and more precise work
  • Creating visual journals to use as inspiration when you're stuck
  • Tips for setting up your home studio on a budget
  • Choosing encaustic paints to create on your own personal color palette
  • How and why you might want to start painting in a series
  • Options for preparing boards, finishing edges and framing finished work
  • What to consider when working on large encaustic paintings
  • How to get started showing and selling your work

To arrange a private session with me first purchase the appropriate time block below and enter the topics you'd like to cover. You can always email me with more details about what you'd like to accomplish during our time together. Sessions will be held my private studio in NE Portland and are $75/hour with a minimum of 3 hours. Learning the basics of a new technique usually takes about 3 hours.
