I’m an artist and instructor/creative coach. I’ve spent many years painting outdoors, what we call “en plein air”, which is a fancy french term that means “outdoors”. I have a huge passion for nature having grown up on a river right next to the ocean with nothing but islands and wildlife behind my house.  My background is in illustration (35 years) where I worked in almost every medium and style you can think of… except maybe egg tempera and marble.

As an instructor, I am taking my years of acquired knowledge from illustration, graphic design, plein air, teaching Critical thinking and the aforemetioned topics and morphing them together in my work and with what I teach. I give people a way to access the creative spirit and broaden not just the way they paint but the way they think.
