Painting Faculty


How did you first get involved with ASLD and when?
I signed up as a student when the Arts Students League of Denver first opened in 1987.

How has ASLD shaped you as an artist?
ASLD had a profound influence on me as an artist. I was able to attend classes and workshops with professional artists that I admire and respect.

What faculty members have you taken courses with as ASLD?
 I studied with Mark Daily at ASLD and took workshops with Ned Jacob, Clyde Aspevig and Richard Schmid.

What do you like about the ASLD community?
In addition to inspiring classes, Events, Exhibitions, meeting artist friends and now as a teacher of Landscape Painting it is the inspiring people that all have a love and passion for the arts.

Anything else you want to share with us?
I sure hope a book is created someday about ASLD: its teachers, founders and artists of note.
