My Mission

As an artist I'm quite content just staying in my studio, but my love is sharing with others  to help them improve their skills or realize their dreams.


"Your comment gave me my first aha moment of learning watercolors. I absolutely loved it " Sandra Hurley

"I can't believe how much I am learning, and am so amazed at how much you have packed into this class. The class has exceeded my expectationsThank you for all your input this has been amazing!" Lisa Oliver

"I was so surprised I was able to paint it without a drawing. It’s so different -Love this style of painting. As you said it’s gives use more chance to be creative." Margaret Murphy

As a school district administrator I have been in thousands of classrooms over the past 30 years. I want to complement you on your teaching style, your access though technology, and of course your art work. I would highly recommend you to anyone be they a beginner or advanced watercolorist." Linda Denton

"This has opened up a whole new world for me, yesterday's session drove home the point of how to turn a pleasant photo into a dramatic subject that truly tells a story. If I learn nothing else in the class (but I will 🤗), that lesson alone was worth the price of admission! A tangible AHA moment for me. Thanks for the joy" Sue Warnock

"I have struggled with that for years and FINALLY, thanks to you, feel that I have a better grasp of the techniques. Your the only instructor to explain it throughly. This has been a FANTASTIC course - thanks so much for offering it! I really like the online courses (this is my second) & will definitely be taking more! Thanks again, Karen Schmidt
