Light Touch, watercolor, 12″ x 9″
I’m a fine artist painter, master watercolorist and teacher.
I’m also insanely inspired by the Big Island of Hawaii. For over 20 years I’ve painted en pleinair landscapes of this island, finally moving here two years ago to make Hawaii my home.
I paint in an expressive, painterly style with focus on landscape painting inspired by the rich colors and vibrant nature of the tropics.
I’m passionate about teaching others to tap into their creative experience. I offer art workshops on the Big Island and Maui as a visiting artist at the Hui No’eau Visual Arts Center.
Painting Workshops and Art Retreats
See schedule: Workshops
I teach painting workshops in Pahoa, along the scenic Red Road on Big Island of Hawaii. Classes include watercolor, landscape painting, alcohol inks, intuitive abstraction, and collage.
Art Retreats. I offer private and group retreats. I can provide accommodation for one or two people in a cozy, private ‘ohana’ ~ just steps from a beautiful light-filled art studio and close to the famous Red Road.
Check out Tropical Art and Nature Retreat, scheduled for February 2nd – 7th, 2020
