NEWSLETTER"When I go to an art gallery and stand in front of a painting, I don't want someone telling me what I should be seeing or thinking; I want to feel whatever I feel, see whatever I see, and figure out what I figure out."- James Frey
I have been painting watercolors and teaching the painting of watercolors in Boulder for more than 20 years. I love teaching students how to “treasure their accidents/mistakes” and “let go of some control and become more slob like” with the paints. I fell in love with watercolor painting many years ago and have been trying to figure it out ever since; each painting is a new adventure involving lots of risk taking, leaping forward, reining in the flowing paint to create form. It involves dealing with fear and conjuring up lots of bravery. I’m enthralled with color and want to create a sense of energy and freshness in my paintings. I paint landscapes, still life, people, gardens, and flowers. I also take people on painting travel trips, to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, Tuscany, Spain, Greece, and beyond.
