Painting is my most direct form of creative expression. As an artist, I long to connect and celebrate with nature and stir myself and others to be surprised by joy. The play of light in landscapes or the candid expressions in ourselves often point to the Divine. Truly, a connection with our Maker and creation as it should be anchors us in an often turbulent man-made world.
Sharing my knowledge with students and mentoring artists is my passion. In order to paint one must master drawing. As a classically trained artist, I can lead the way to drawing and painting mastery via private instruction or classes and make your journey fun and exciting. Check out my classes and workshops page!
Watercolor is my first love due to its ability to abandon itself to chance revelations as the paint flows and mixes on paper, followed by the immediacy and intensity of pastel and lastly, the buttery density and saturated colors of oil paint.
