I have been teaching watercolor for over 32 consecutive years (see below) and absolutely love this medium. I was originally an oil artist while I was teaching our 3 sons at home. We needed more income, so I started teaching drawing to home school students. Then their mothers asked me to teach them to paint. I could not see having turpentine and staining oil paints around 10 wiggly kids at a time. My solution was to learn watercolor, so the Lord and I went to the store and got a book and paints. I began teaching watercolor to my students the next week, staying one painting ahead of them. That was possibly the biggest undertaking I ever did along with home schooling our boys at the same time. I let my oil paints dry up, never opening them ever again. Looking back I am so thankful I learned to paint and teach watercolor. I am still teaching it after 31 consecutive years! Amazing! That was not my original plan, but I just could never seem to stop. I love it!
I lost all my hair in 2016 going through the toughest battle of my life with stage 4 breast cancer metastasized into my lungs. I had much prayer from my family and friends believing with us that the Lord would heal me. God told me to "count it all joy" so I chose to do that each day as I went through all the difficult trials, even having the flu in the middle of chemo treatments. I'm now a cancer survivor, and I thank Jesus every day for giving me my life back.
This year 2020, my goal is to create a YouTube Channel that I will use to teach watercolor at all levels of skill. There will be a link to my Channel as soon as I start. I will also notify you when it starts so be sure to Join My Email List below on the left. I will also email you when I have any new paintings on my site, which should be often. Thank you so much for dropping by. Please leave me a message by clicking on the Contact tab at the top of the page. I'll receive your note in my email. I would love to know what you think of my watercolor website.
