New Workshops for 2015

Glacier National Park, Montana

Glacier National Park, Montana

Upon returning from a most uplifting hiking trip and art retreat in Montana recently, I am very happy to announce a new series of workshops for the year ahead. These new workshops will give us time to dive deep into encaustic painting for all those new to it, and will share lots of new techniques with those who are already familiar with it. The new workshop page is on my website, over at:

I look forward to sharing the studio with you!
