Whether you have been in almost all of my classes or this the first time you've heard of me, I have a variety of oil painting classes around the country and at my own studio, The Art Loft, to help with your

Through classes and seminars you can continue to develop your skills, share ideas, join old friends and meet new friends with the same passion -- the love of painting and

Wishing you artistic success,
