Welcome to my world of art!
I'm an avid watercolor and oil painter in the Northern Virginia area and primarily work outdoors, painting "en plein aire". I've been plein air painting for over 15 years locally, all over the country and many places in Europe!
I am currently teaching watercolor classes in several places in Virginia.

I participated in the Great Falls Plein Air event this past week and came home with an Honorable Mention for "Dance With Me". This is a lovely historic dance hall in Great Falls, Virginia. We had gorgeous weather and the structure just talked to me. One of these days I'm going to actually go to one of the dances. I'm getting closer!

I also painted the whimsically "Fairy Garden" watercolor as well during this competition. You would never know this magical garden was there unless you were invited. The garden is a series of winding moss covered paths with decorative garden ornaments at every turn. It is beautifully and naturally landscaped. What a special place.

These two paintings along with the other 56 from this event will be on display at the Great Falls Art School Gallery till September 30th. Please see their website for gallery hours.
