Hello, and welcome my blog site! After nearly three decades of a life in the arts, and about six years teaching art under my belt, I am excited to have a forum to share my thoughts, discoveries, challenges, and insights in all things pertaining to the visual arts. Here, you will find tips on drawing and painting, fundamental principles, help with technique, and advice on materials. But I also want to share with you some personal thoughts on process, and the joys (and sometimes sorrows!) of leading a creative life. I hope you’ll find something helpful here to advance your own craft!
