I am a watercolor painter and instructor based in Falls Church. My favorite subjects are people, and my goal is to capture an emotion or gesture that defines an individual.
I began painting in 1998, studying for many years at the Art League School in Alexandria, Va., and at workshops around the country. The artist Ted Nuttall was influential in my embrace of portraiture and my development of my own style. I began teaching watercolor classes in my home studio in 2014. After more than a year on Zoom, it's lovely to welcome students back in person!
