About me   I have 45 years teaching experience at all levels in community colleges, churches, art programs and senior centers. My basic painting and drawing lessons and workshops, offered to large groups as well as to individuals, have inspired many students to continue exploring their creativity. I'm a friendly and enthusiastic instructor who structures clear, step-by-step lessons that teach basic skills and promote artistic development.

The medium of transparent watercolor challenges me to be open and flexible, responsive to the reactions of paper to water, pigment to brush. I consider myself an explorer and enjoy finding new ways to express my feelings of spiritual connection with nature and my fascination with ancient cultures and mythology.

Calling forth an idea for a painting and interacting with vibrant colors to create something unique and pleasing, I enjoy losing myself in the process.
