of Summer



I have 30 years experience as a painting instructor. Ongoing painting classes include adult education at Polaris Career Center, Middleburg Heights, Ohio, BayArts, Bay Village, Ohio, and private instruction.  I frequently conduct painting demonstrations and workshops and have served as both selection and awards juror for art organizations. Please inquire via e-mail for current course offerings or to schedule a demonstration or workshop.
    As a charter member of the Ohio Watercolor Society I have served on its Board of Trustees, as Annual Exhibition Chairman, Awards Chairman, and as Regional Show Chairman.
    My paintings have been purchased for numerous private and corporate, national and international art collections.
