About

My work focuses on three things that are very meaningful to me: companion animals, rural life, and the land. I specialize in watercolor and gouache, but love to explore other mediums. I love sketching on location and almost always have a sketchbook with me wherever I go.

I teach watercolor and sketching workshops at regional art centers and other venues. If you’d like me to give a workshop at your venue, please get in touch.

I created The Sketch Deck to inspire sketchers everywhere–especially beginners–to sketch more frequently, confidently, and creatively. Check it out!
