“I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. After graduating from college, I taught drawing and painting at the secondary level, and later found other creative outlets: illustrating a children’s book, and working on set direction for the Smithsonian Institution and also at a maritime museum in New York. After a twenty year career in advertising and graphic ad design, I retired, and now I am painting full time in the medium of watercolor. 

Artists of the past and the present speak to me with their music, stories and poems. However, it is with painters that I feel a special kinship.

Painting is my way of expressing delight in my everyday surroundings. I walk the beaches and observe the moods of the ocean and the people at play and contemplation. I delight in the patterns created by sunlight playing on palm fronds, the subtle color gradations of foliage, and the majesty of the old oak trees and sycamores indigenous to this part of the world.”

Supply list for February Workshop


1 sheet of Arches 22’x30" 140 lb cold press (watercolor blocks not encouraged)

NO Strathmore or student grade, but Fabriano 140 lb is okay


Gator board optional for mounting your paper. 1/2 inch (Gator board can be purchased and cut for  you at SC Art Supply. You can share this expense with someone else taking the workshop. This board should be a board 12”x16” or larger as we’ll be working on 1/4 sheets of paper (11”X15”)


Brushes: Any  #12 or #14- it has a great point and it holds plenty of wash. These are available at SC Art Supply. Bring any brushes with you and we can discuss their merits and limitations. And I will bring flats and other sized rounds for you to experiment with.


Pencils: I prefer working with a mechanical pencil 0.7 or 0.5 as they leave less carbon print on the paper, but an HB pencil will do. Also an kneaded eraser as it ls less abrasive on the paper surface.


Pigments: I have been gravitating more and more to Daniel Smith brand but Winsor Newton, Holbein and Da Vinci are all good brands, as are all the pigments carried at SC Art Supply. But please no student grade or pans.
