I​ am a self-taught mixed media artist who enjoys working with Acrylics in all forms. I love the excitement that occurs when you mix color, pattern, and form. As a member of the Working Artist Team for Golden Artist Colors, Inc. for eight years, I have been technically trained to share information about acrylics to you. As a member of the Golden Artist Educators Program, I use my workshops to share techniques with others.

I teach throughout Southern CA, and the United States at various venues such as art supply stores, artist retreats, and art organizations.  My teaching brings me into contact with so many wonderful and creative individuals from beginners to accomplished artists.  My training as an educator has given me the skill to design and present classes and lectures that are both informational and fun.  For me art is filled with the adventure of serendipitous moments which lead to new opportunities to explore and create.


My books and DVD's provide a concrete record of the techniques and processes that I have developed and used in my own work.  I believe that knowing your art materials well will allow your skillsto grow more rapidly and technique to  develop more fluidly.
