I teach an ONGOING PAINTING CLASS at my studio in Petaluma, focusing on abstract interpretation from life.
All levels are welcome. The class includes time for instruction, painting, and critique in a very supportive environment.
I encourage students to develop bodies of work and follow their own vision. Email me if you are interested in joining us.

One on one sessions are available for painting, critique of paintings, or goal setting.  $55/hour.
