Educator & Designer
Welcome to my Botanical Arts site!
I am currently accepting art commissions and also offer many online classes.
My goal is to train students to be independent artists in the art of observational drawing and painting.
I offer six week online classes in a nurturing, yet challenging, small group studio environment. Each class includes step-by-step instruction, art history inspiration, technique demonstrations, instructor feedback on individual work and lots of time for student questions.
Topics include leaves, flowers, fruits, and much more.
