Fall Class Info


My favorite part of being an artist is having the opportunity to explore new ideas and new methods of expression. I see each new work as a journey of discovery. Although I’m best known for my work in watercolor, I also use oil, acrylic and goauche paints, encaustic, collage and mixed media.

I’m entering my fourth year at Gallery 7 and with each exhibit the excitement and enthusiasm grows.
