I am blessed with the most fulfilling occupation I could ever enjoy:
offering art instruction.
With over thirty years of teaching experience, as well as a career as a professional portrait painter and book illustrator, I am able to offer my students a wide range of innovative methods and techniques, in all media, mostly in color pencil. A great number of my students have mastered their own art to the point of earning First Place or Best of Show awards in local art competitions. Many sell their paintings, blossoming into professional artists, or become art instructors themselves.
For the last few years, I have been overwhelmed by the great response
to my seminars at national conferences such as New England Traditions
in MA; Creative Painting in NV; and the OKC Painting Palooza in OK. Throughout the year, I teach at scores of SDP Chapters and Art Associations all over the nation.
You can also learn my techniques from an abundance of pattern
packets, books and DVD’s available on my website.
Cathy and I have been married since 1975 and we travel together, enjoying the wonderful support from my devoted students, and always look forward to meeting new artists.
