A Sense of Place

I stop to paint my words.
Miniatures are practical and intimate.
I teach because I love it.

Mother Earth has beauty, endurance and resilience beyond all imagination. We dance together, her and I, finding that still, small voice of peace, joy, and compassion.

I fell in love with Plein Air during my studies at Fort Burgwin Research Center, Taos, NM. Sharing the journey, I teach with the heart. Through direct and contemplative observation methods, we paint deep into the intimacy of the dance.
