Welcome to my blog!

This is a great way to talk about my class this Fall, Combining Pastel and Watercolor to Enhance Your Painting Dynamics. This is the class to take if you already have some experience using pastels and want to take your experience to the next level. I will be posting here about using pastels with watercolor (psst- you can also use oil stain, more later..) on 'sanded' paper.  Pastel Society of America Hall of Fame Richard McKinley offers a pastel and oil workshop in Santa Barbara once a year. What I learn at these workshops allows me to grow in my own work and to share with you. You can see Richards work on his website.                                           

Below are a few of my paintings recently on exhibit at Gallery Los Olivos, you may visit the gallery online at or stop by anytime daily from 10:00 am - 5:00 pm. 
This November, you are invited to see my studio and paintings at the 10th Mesa Artists Studio Tour. You can find us Mesa Artists at Mesa Artists Studio Tour
