I paint the figure using controlled wet-in-wet washes in a large format.  I use a very limited palette and put down an arbitrary first layer, then paint the subject on top of that. Ideally, the first layer provides surprises, challenges, and movement under the transparent painting of the subject.
 

My work has been featured in the following magazines:  International Artist, Watermedia Focus, The Palette, Watercolor and Watercolor Highlights.  I am fortunate that my paintings have won awards in many national exhibitions, and I am a Signature Member of Watercolor West, the National Watercolor Society, the San Diego Watercolor Society and the Northwest Watercolor Society. 

I recently retired from twelve years on the board of Watercolor West, where I held many jobs, including Exhibition Chair and President. 

I live in Palm Desert, California, and I am available upon request for judging, demonstrations and workshops.

April 9-10, 2016 I will be teaching a two-day workshop entitled, "I Want More!" for the San Diego Watercolor Society. Info, sign-up and materials list are available at www.sdws.org/workshopslist.php.
