Upcoming Classes and Workshops
I teach classes and workshops year around, but classes
are scarce during the summer months. That is prime

You can find all available classes on the Schedule page.
If you have a topic you'd like to see in a future workshop email your idea to email@example.com. I do pay close attention and log your requests so that I know what you are interested in learning.

My Favorite Painting things...
I am often asked about my gear, paints, brushes, solvents, etc.
I have finally gathered up all the particulars and created a couple of pages dedicated to my gear and supplies.
I have broken down my list into "plein air" and "studio" supplies and equipment. I'll do my best to routinely update (I do LOVE to try new colors!) so here is goes...!
I am a voracious reader, so check back often for a list of books I recommend to improve your art.
My list is currently under construction, but you can see what's on it so far by clicking the button.
