• Also, don’t forget your water containers, apron, and towels.

About the Instructor:

I was born in California, attended college in Iowa earning a degree in secondary education.  We became an Air Force family, which meant not only travel, but it meant I connected with a variety of jobs all involving teaching, training and creativity.  My creative skills began with woodcarving, but I always wanted to try my hand at watercolor.  I started taking classes with artists Bev Joswiak, Vickie Nelson, Gene Drake, Bridget Austin and many others.  I love watercolor and I am still captivated with all the different effects and moods that come from my brush.  I have taught many classes and continue to enjoy sharing my skills with others.  I’ve been shown in many galleries successfully, been commissioned to paint pets and subjects, and competed in Wisconsin WRAP events.
