I consider myself primarily a watercolorist that finds inspiration in the beauty of my natural surroundings and the ordinary in life. For me, creativity is an ongoing process, an "active" meditation and practice.
In addition to being a painter, I am also an art instructor. Since 1994 I have worked as a Teaching Artist (and now credentialed art teacher) in many public schools and art organizations (like the Humboldt Arts Council and the Ink People). I currently teach museum art classes and summer art camps for children at the Morris Graves Museum of Art. During the summer, I facilitate painting retreats and offer adults watercolor workshops at the Morris Graves Foundation in Loleta.
A complete resume of my exhibition history and teaching experience is available upon request. My paintings can be viewed at my studion by appointment only. For more information about my artwork and classes, contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org .
