Living in New England I am most fortunate to have had the opportunity to gain instruction from some of the finest artists and landscape painters of our time in both pastel and watercolor mediums.

I took years of instruction from Juanita who first introduced me to pastels. She was a free and loving spirit who shared her gift with the world and guided many children @ the Firehouse Gallery.
Michael Smith Sr San Jose, CA Better known as Smitty he developed quick dry oil paint in the 70's he shared his love and techniques with so very many of us. His son Michael is an accomplished NYC Artist.

Jacob's winter classes help keep us all connected and painting through the cold season. His ability to gently guide one through the painting process is always a positive experience.

Joel Popadics - NJ Wrokshops in VT
I took my first Joel Popadics plein air workshop several years ago in VT prior to that I had only traveled as far as Woodstock. It is a tradition to go to the lovely lake each summer and learn from Joel as he passes on the lessons he has learned from other artists. So much excitement and inspiration to capture nature.
