Woodstock Workshop Sep. 3rd, 2015

At the end of August, I was lucky to be teaching in Woodstock, NY at Sweetheart Gallery, the home and gallery of Norman and Lila Bacon.

The workshop was sponsored and hosted by Bernard and Judi from Galerie BMG. It was a wonderful gathering in the mountains with beautiful weather and excellent food made by Bread Alone plus lots of encaustic painting.

Bernard is friends with the owner of R&F Encaustic Paints so we had lots of supplies, food and great company. Paper was sponsored by Carol Boss at Hahnemuhle. The artwork and painting was inspiring! It was a very successful weekend. Thanks to all!

Elizabeth, Maria, and Kelly Apr. 21st, 2015

Photos from my photo encaustic workshop at Elizabeth Messina‘s studio.  It was great meeting and teaching Maria and Kelly, two amazing women who are both Elizabeth’s employees.  Elizabeth and I have been friends since college, so it is always nice to reconnect, share art, and create.

Elizabeth and I went to San Francisco Art Institute where we studied with Linda Conner. Elizabeth has published two books, The Luminous Portrait and The Silver Lining. Her work can be seen on She has an amazing career and publishes work all the time in magazines! I absolutely love spending time with her. She has shared so many important values and creative inspiration with me! My encaustics and her photographs just are a perfect match!
