I'm a watercolor painter, exhibitor, teacher, workshop leader and commentator who paints with watercolor.
Besides painting, I teach watercolor classes, demonstrations and workshops for all levels, and offer individual tutoring by appointment. If you are interested in class schedules or tutoring, please contact me using the "Contact" tab at the top of the page.
I am interested in all subjects but find myself continually drawn to landscapes, city- and town-scapes. I pursue painting from a personally expressive point of view, seeking to find and tell a personal story with each painting. As you can see, color and light figure importantly in my work!
I'm a member of the Boerne Art League and the Guadalupe Watercolor Group.
I'm fortunate to have been awarded juried Signature Artist Membership in the Baltimore Watercolor Society (BWS), the Philadelphia Water Color Society (PWCS), the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society (PWS), and the Texas Watercolor Society (TWS).
I hope you enjoy seeing my work, and if so please leave a comment in the guest book on the Contact Me page.
