in-studio / remote and online :
Regardless of where one is in their practice a little support, an impartial critical eye, suggestions around the physical layout of the work space, alternative uses of materials and techniques--we all need help; we all need it from time to time...I offer Mentoring support for the working or nascent artist seeking to push their practice in the tradition of my Mixed Media Workshops in San Francisco, Dakar, Senegal, Lecce, Treviso and Venice, Italy, Mexico and throughout the United States.
Up Close and Personal Support:
In Studio / Remote Online / Constant Contact / Curatorial Services / Portfolio Review / Gallery and Museum Visits
The purpose being to create an atmosphere for concentrated art making, "coaching", critique and development of a portfolio suitable for gallery presentation as well as assessing where you want to go with your practice via focused goal-specific sessions.These sessions are augmented with assignments, challenges and dialog between mentor and participant toward an evolving development of technique, confidence, skills and the creation of a limited body of new works. I am willing to consider indeterminate or difficult schedules but would want at a minimum a six month commitment that might be accommodated every other month with ongoing electronic contact or in any manner agreeable to both of us. These would be twelve (12) ... 2 hour sessions.
A discussion of realistic goals and needs is necessary

"...in my case, the whole enterprise is questioned upon each studio session as an existential tight rope walk above an abyss...as if I need to reclaim or be reclaimed by the process, the magic, the high that produces satisfactory work...it is a psychic muscle whose presence can't be counted upon, but conjured ...a weather report of the soul, and sometimes it ain't sunny and bright.
