Tuscany Open House & Open Studio - Wednesday November 13th

Wednesday November 13th from 11am – 2pm I will be hosting an Information Open House in regards to my upcoming trip to Tuscany as well as an Open Studio. If you cannot make it and are interested in coming by we can arrange a time, just let me know.  Please RSVP by clicking here.

Highlights of the trip:  We are staying and traveling in an unspoiled area of Tuscany near the Coast.  The food prepared by our host family is incredible, fresh and seasonal.  We will paint the gorgeous countryside, street scenes, coastal scenes and vineyard landscapes to name a few.  We will also have day trips which may include, a vineyard, Cinque Terre, the walled city of Lucca and a fabulous Market in Forte dei Marmi.  The Market in Forte is a must do, they sell everything from luxurious cashmere, to beautiful shoes, to wonderful gifts to bring home to friends and family.  All levels of painters are welcome.  The trip will not only be painting but enjoying the culture.  We will provide tons of information about traveling with paints and what gear to bring so no worries there. 

Color Boot Camp

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.

Spring In Beaufort

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!  

Upcoming Workshops

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.
