I have been working as a professional artist since graduating with my BFA in 2007. Living and working in Dover NH for the over 5 years and have recently opened a new gallery and studio downtown.

I enjoy sharing the lessons I've learned from the talented professors who taught me how to work with watercolor at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and at Lorenzo de' Medici University in Florence, Italy.

Jennifer writes: "What a wonderful way to spend time! Danielle started our class introducing us to examples of watercolor paintings and explaining the different techniques used in each of them, then we tried them out! She was very methodical in teaching us each of the techniques including, washes, color blending, dry brush and color lifting. She tailored the class to our experience level, or in our case, our lack of experience. I can’t recommend this class enough! It was so much fun and so inspiring! We wouldn’t wait to get home and continue our journey into watercolors that ...

My art lessons are tailored to my client's individual needs. Whether I am working with a pure beginner or an advanced student, I help all of my students reach their full potential and discover their creative voice. I teach both artistic technical and conceptual skills to make my students well rounded artists. I have 25+ years of experience making art as well as 8 years as an educator, with 6 as an art teacher. I have worked with all ages and skill levels.
Painting is my speciality but I also teach drawing, photogrsphy, simple sculpture, and printmaking. I have taught all painting mediums and subjects but my personal favorite is a little known medium called gouache! In my personal art I mostly paint landscapes, city scenes, and portraits. I love to explore mediums with clients and find out the best fit.

Jane is a wonderful teacher. She's funny, patient, kind, and supportive. She is very skilled at giving feedback that is developmentally appropriate and helpful. She's also an accomplished artist with a rich knowledge of art history, which she incorporates into her lessons when appropriate, and which I personally enjoy greatly.

Watercolor is a media of extremes- either very free or very controlled! Students will learn which way they prefer to go with it- mastering the use of lights and darks and the order in which paint must be applied. They will use various tools to achieve interesting effects- salt, rubbing alcohol, and masking fluid.

About Melanie

I take great joy in bringing art to the surface that the student didn't even know they had within them! Creating art is mainly about confidence, and I build that with each person, one on one. As they gain confidence, the techniques needed to create meaningful and engaging art come more easily. I ha

I am a practicing artist of almost 9 years! Being creative is a great way to express yourself and bring forth a piece of mind. Painting is an activity that allows for you to put on canvas whatever landscape, image or emotion you wish to portray. From abstract painting to hyperrealism, we can dive in together to discover some of your favorite ways to express your creativity. Whether it be through watercolor, acrylic, oil painting or another medium, painting what the student wishes to gain further experience in is what we will accomplish. My aspiration is to be able to let each student discover and further the true artist within them! Shoot me a message and let’s get creative! All skill levels welcome!

"I learned about the composition of various paints, how to paint with water plus color and how to mix paints. In previous classes, I was not taught this Megan explains clearly. She will have you paint along with her to create a picture that demonstrates each lesson. For a virtual lesson, it was done well"
