A Look Back at 2019 from the Studio

As I put together these photos from the past year, three things stood out: painting, teaching, and traveling. I have been fortunate to meet and learn from such inspiring people this year.


Learn to Oil Paint in 2020

I offer group and private lessons out of my studio. Simply email me for more information on times and pricing. I will offer a one day, off-site workshop this summer. Sign up for my post updates and stay tuned for details.



I love to travel, and to be able to combine art with travel is heaven. Beyond beautiful locations, I enjoy meeting and learning from a variety of people.


Looking Forward to 2020

I'm excited to continue working on my "Country Roads" series, exploring high horizons and muted rural landscapes.


Set your Sketch Book Resolution

Sketching is a great way to improve your confidence and skill at any level. Just make it a habit. Join me in creating a sketch a day in January. Need more instruction. Check out my post on sketching from February.

For another resource I recommend The Sketch by Robert Oliver.


Local Events

Don't forget to visit Van Gogh And His Inspirations at The Columbia Museum of Art in Columbia, South Carolina before it ends on January 12, 2020.
