I am a professional artist and musician in Chattanooga, TN! I have been teaching art and music for six years in California and Tennessee. I have been painting since I was big enough to hold a paintbrush and playing the harp for over 15 years. I have a degree from Stanford University in Art Practice (Painting) and studied and performed under the tutelage of Marjorie Chauvel at Stanford University.
My harp students can expect fun weekly lessons that go over basic harp technique, music theory, sight reading, and music history. Beyond that, all your lessons will be tailored to YOUR music goals. Do you want to learn to arrange covers of your favorite songs? Let's get to it! I supplement my lessons by teaching good habits for practicing, exercises and stretches to minimize muscle fatigue, and the basics of how to find performance opportunities to share your love of the harp with the world!
My art students can expect similarly tailored lessons. I teach most forms of visual art from oil painting to sculpture to photography to drawing. Once we've talked about your goals and hopes and dreams as a new artist, we will work together to develop a skillset in creativity that will last a lifetime.

Nothing brings me joy like music and painting, except sharing that joy with others! Whether it is through lessons, performances, or discussing paintings to visitors at a gallery, I find my joy in life through creating art and sharing it with the world.
My three boys (ages 11-15) loved working with Tori. We still have the block print-making pieces, paintings and charcoal drawings displayed in our kitchen. Their favorite project was creating plaster casts of their own faces. Tori is very thoughtful, patient and has a great zen energy. I highly recommend Tori!
I can't recommend lessons with Tori highly enough! I've been obsessed with oil painting, and every kind of 2D visual art, for as long as I can remember, but I never really believed in myself to do it until I worked with Tori. My drawing, painting, and even my 3D work progressed more, and more quickly, working with Tori than they had in years Thank you Tori!!!!
I begin working with a new customer with a consultation to discuss their needs! Whether they are looking to purchase a peice of art, hire a harpist for their wedding or event, or begin to learn to paint or play music! From there we begin lessons with a customized lesson plan, or I begin planning performances or paintings to fit their needs.
I have studied the harp for over sixteen years in North Carolina and at Stanford University under Marjorie Chauvel's Tutelage.
I graduated with a degree in Art Practice with Honors in 2018.
