I have been painting for pleasure for over 15 years, continuously learning in workshops with well known transparent watercolor painters: Tony Couch, Dale Laitenen, Ken Hosmer, and more. My most important teachers were Carl Miller, AWS, with whom I painted for many years, and my current mentor, Popi Tyler, who encourages me and coaches me on all aspects of my work. I love transparent watercolor because of it’s challenges and its broad ability to express feeling for the subject.
My work has been shown at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts, the Watercolor Society of Sonoma County annual exhibit, at Ironstone Winery, and at the Russian Hill Winery. I currently participate in an exhibit at Empire College in Santa Rosa.
My technical skills and ability to paint expressively have steadily grown over the years. I plan to never stop painting. I hold a Masters degree in Organization Development and for 12 years have been a consultant to managers who want to grow and change their organizations.
