Intuitive Watercolor PaintingDate: TBA
In this class we will explore various patterns and forms from nature. These patterns will be used as a point of departure to explore further abstraction. Using watercolor, line, collage and mixed media, students will develop their own abstract vocabulary as a form of self expression. Various watercolor techniques will be introduced with focus on experimentation, playfulness and fun!
See blog post from the most recent workshop. All levels welcome!

I’m excited that I can now offer personalized Art Retreats. I can provide accommodation for one or two people in a private ‘ohana’ just steps away from a beautiful art studio, close to the famous Red Road on the coast of the Big Island. There are countless magical vistas and natural beauty to inspire you on the island. Choose how you would like to be guided. Observe directly from nature or allow intuition to be your guide. I design the workshop for your specific area of artistic exploration. Two days to one week workshops offered. Prices range from $200/day – $1100/week. Prices include accommodation for single or couple. Contact me to schedule your personal art retreat.
Abstract Expressionism Workshop
The Abstract Painting workshop was so much fun! Just view the photos from our class we just had this November to see how everyone explored their own abstract vocabulary. By painting bigger and with larger brushes people broadened their ideas and views of painting.
Watercolor & Collage Workshop
My students expanded their experience with watercolor after demonstrating some basic techniques with the watercolor medium. They then recycled their artwork by creating collages with their paintings. This became a process in balancing control with releasing control, and then allowing for an entirely unpredictable outcome. As usual, I learned from my students as they revealed their unique creative skills and vision that they offered to the class.
Abstract Painting Workshop
My student Kieran had fun expressing himself using repetitive shapes and rhythm during the abstract painting exercises last week.
