"With over 30 years experience in teaching art to people of all ages, I believe now that everyone has talent. It is in learning and combining the talent that helps the artist find one's own style and not fool oneself with gadgets and aids, but build confidence with skill to produce works from your inner self, whether classical or modern abstract.
