"If you continue to grow as an artist your creative future is limitless."
- Virginia Brooks
“I feel I was there with you when you painted that scene.” There is no greater compliment. I move comfortably between the red rock scenery of the southwest to the vivid lavender fields of Provence. I also value the ability to evoke a mood of soft, serene calm.
Learn to Paint
My studio is colored with encouragement. Many people have a strong desire to try painting but have not discovered their own ability. That’s where I come in. My goal is to help potential painters learn about their own innate talents…expressing what they love and what they have learned in life.
What people are saying...
I love to share what I have learned during 45 years of painting in oils. How do you face a blank canvas? What do you need to know before you try painting en plein air? Are the expensive supplies worth the extra price? How do you turn a favorite photo into a successful composition? And my speciality is inspiration…how to get it and how to keep it.
