Art has been a part of my life since childhood. Along with many others, I started following the wet-on-wet technique from William Alexander on TV in the 1980s and later Bob Ross, Wilson Bickford, and others. My art was put on hold while my wife and I raised our four children. Now that they are all grown up, I picked up my brushes again, re-learning how relaxing and fun it is. I love doing landscape and wildlife art the most. My current goal is to establish myself as a small group instructor in the wet-on-wet technique. As a first step, I earned my training certification in the Bob Ross technique in 2020. I also have obtain rights to teach Wilson Bickford paintings. I have over 30 years experience teaching adults in my career as a safety and ergonomics specialist. My goal is to help others to unleash the artist that lives within them.
*Wet-on-wet technique is an age-old technique in which wet paint is added in layers, thin over thick paint, which allows a painting to be done in hours versus days to weeks. This is a very stress free and creative method of painting. It is a great technique in which to learn how to paint.
