I'm Matthew, an oil painter with a portrait and landscape background based in Los Angeles, CA. Since 2019, I've exhibited work in Santa Barbara, Ojai, and Los Angeles exploring the scenes of life and nature on canvas.
My biggest improvements (and best times) have been made while painting with others and I'd love to share this experience with you! Whether you're a seasoned artist or a first-timer, I'm here to help you discover new techniques and interests in your art and have a good time while we do it.
I looking forward to getting to know you and your creations!
