So excited to be teaching again in Charlotte this spring and even more excited to be teaching a Color Boot Camp Workshop! The workshop will be held May 2 - 4 at Myers Park Baptist Church in their Youth Hall. This isn't going to be another one of those boring old workshops, I promise to make these three days fun and filled with color exploration from several different approaches. We will be completing several smaller paintings as well as a some larger studies. To register and get more information, click here.
October is such a beautiful time of the year in Charlotte, which makes me excited to be hosting my next workshop October 25-27, 2017. Class is filling up fast though and we only have a few spots left. We would love to have you join us, to get more information and to register, click here.

Such exciting news! I have scheduled my next Charlotte Workshop for October 2017 and I have scheduled an Atlanta Workshop for February 2018! "Exploring The Surface" will include topics like: Color Theory, Value Studies and Simplification, as well as other subjects. Space will be limited at both venues, so please register early and feel free to email me with any questions.
I have to say, I just got back from such a lovely trip to Beaufort NC and Craving Art Studio! My fantastic host Heather Sink was just as much of a pleasure to be with this year as she was last year! She is currently hosting a show of my works until the end of May and was so kind to host my three day "Exploring The Surface " workshop. I love doing workshops in Beaufort so much, we have agreed to do another one next year, once we have dates, we will update everyone! Beaufort is such a beautiful town, full of great people, food and amazing views! For those who don't know, it's actually the third-oldest town in North Carolina, it's a coastal town located in an area referred to as the "inner-banks" and it hosts several fun festivals through out the year. I just lucked out to be there for the 2017 Beaufort Wine and Food Festival this year!
Excited to share some news! I have secured the dates with Binders Art Supplies in Atlanta (the Buckhead locacation) for my "Exploring The Surface Workshop". The workshop will be February 7-9, 2018 and registration will begin here on my website in the next few weeks, so stay tuned! I am also planning on an October Workshop here in Charlotte, we will have those dates finalized by early May.
Holiday Specials Are Coming!!
Summer is gone all too fast and the holidays are around the corner. I am excited to announce two amazing promotions coming in December!
Excited to announce I will be hosting a beginners-level workshop here in Charlotte on February 8 - 10, 2017 at Myers Park Baptist Church. This workshop will cover some basic fundamentals of painting including Color Theory and Paint Application: Brush and Palette Knife, but you don't have to be a beginner to take this class, you can just want to "brush up" on the basics!

Check out these photos from our Summer 2016 Workshop at Myers Park Baptist:
We recorded this short video during a color mixing demonstration at my recent Charlotte Workshop. I walked my students through mixing several colors, staring with a pile of my mixed black, which is equal parts Burnt Sienna (Winsor Newton) and Ultramarine Blue. This palette of colors was used to create several paintings during the Workshop, and once they come off my dry racks, they will be available in my Studio Shop. Stay tuned!
Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of teaching a workshop here in my hometown of Charlotte, NC to a very talented group of students. We held the workshop in the education building at Myers Park Baptist Church, which was a fantastic space to paint in and a great group of people to work with. One of the highlights of the workshop was day two when several students brought in stunning Hydrangeas in a variety of colors from their own gardens to paint from! I truly enjoyed watching everyone get to know each other and become friends as well as turn to one another for advise during the process. I look forward to my next workshop here in Charlotte coming this fall!
Last week I was in Beaufort, NC at Craving Art Studio teaching a workshop and also leaving a show behind. I had so much fun with Heather Sink, owner of the Studio/Gallery, and all of the new students and friends I met during my visit. The Studio is in a gorgeous restored victorian home. The high ceilings and breath taking natural light were perfect to showcase my work. Heather could not have been more gracious and welcoming, making me feel totally at home in minutes. All of the students were so amazing and became fast new friends. I look forward to returning in Spring 2017 to teach again. Be on the look out - if you are up for a gorgeous town, with really nice people and great food, then Beaufort, NC is for you.
