Educator & Designer
Welcome to my Botanical Arts and Landscape Painting site!
I am excited to announce that I will have a solo show of my artwork at the Valley Artisans Market Gallery in Cambridge, New York, in 2023.
The show opens on March 17th, 2023. We will have an opening reception on March 18th, 3 PM - 5 PM. The last day of the show is April 14th.
I successfully train students of any artistic level to be independent artists in the art of observational drawing and painting.
I offer six to ten week online classes in nurturing, yet challenging, small group studio environments. I also offer in person workshops and private lessons.
Each class session includes step-by-step instruction, art history inspiration, technique demonstrations, instructor feedback on individual work and lots of time for student questions.
