I've been painting since the early 90's. Since then I've been lucky enough to travel the world, doing 'how to' seminars - places like Japan, Australia, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, USA. My greatest joy has been to watch artists develop their skills before my eyes - to witness them as they realize just what they have accomplished! I've written several books, hundreds of instructional packets, presented at trades shows all over North America, and worked with a variety of art material manufacturers. I love landscapes and have more recently enjoyed painting seascapes. I work mostly in oils but many of the floral pieces are done with acrylic. I would love it if you would come and paint with me, I promise to share as much as possible with you and assist you on your road to your potential.
