My Workshops in Portrait and Landscape offer a streamlined path to better painting and drawing. Sharing the knowledge and understanding I've been blessed with is exciting and fun, and my goal is to help you reach a higher level, and provide concepts and processes that will grow along with you.
After working with Pastel for many years, I've shifted into painting with Oils since 2015. I enjoy the process and have been pleased- at the Springfield Old Capitol Art Fair 2018, I was honored to be awarded First Place in Oils! See my show schedule, other painting events, and news about my work.
A life in the creative arts requires my diligence, patience, and curiosity to always be moving forward, taking the next step. These are some of my own inspirations, creative links, and humble observations that have helped me continue along this great journey. I hope they may be useful!
