Painting in Rancho Santa Fe Farms

It was fun painting with my clients on their special day at the comfort of their home. 🎨✨ My clients mentioned in their family that they believe that their loved ones who have passed turn into hummingbirds and so we got to create art that has more meaning which I very much love to do.

Landscape Painting

Painting landscape fosters feelings of peace and that’s partly why I do it.  It’s also a good study of colors and light relationships especially during plein-air.  In this video you will see my painting process from start to finish.  

Pokémon Art

We did a little bit of everything this class (sculpture, drawing, and painting).  I love seeing my students light up when we create artwork that is of their interest.  I believe art is a development of technical skills, dexterity, and focus.  However art should also be engaging.  If my art project fails to capture my Read more about Pokémon Art[…]

Design Student

Painting in downtown San Diego

I painted with a bunch of fun and cute Parisians on the roof of a building in downtown San Diego.  With the vaccines rolling out I am hoping that this could be a regular thing once more before all of our collective  lives took a turn. My painters were so high spirited and we had Read more about Painting in downtown San Diego[…]

Art Camp 2021

I know a lot of things are not open so I just wanted to put this out as a resource for any young art lovers. I have been teaching art classes at my outdoors studio and have had 0 incidents. We wear masks, social distance, and we have fun while learning art!    


I’m so proud of my young art students.  They used their art vocabulary and kept it positive and constructive. They also had great insight on each other’s work! – I try to teach all of my art students to verbalize what they can see using the art vocabulary we use in class and I want Read more about Critiques[…]
