Creating art brings me joy, it gives my visual perception of the world a voice. Therefore, the more I paint, the more I want to paint, and it’s perpetual. Since I’m constantly thinking about art, I identify the world as value scales and colour harmonies.
I enjoy challenging myself to grow, to experiment, and explore new ways of looking at the world. Making art has become my legacy, Each piece a visual record of my life, where I’ve been, what I’ve seen, and how I’ve tried to express that moment to others.
I was worried I wasn’t far enough along when I first signed up. I was quickly put at ease and have progressed much further than I could have on my own. Between the Master and the Demos the value is amazing.

Our focus will be “Learning through Critique”
It can be hard for an artist to be objective of their own work. To break down elements to determine what is working, and what isn’t in their painting. Based on concepts of composition, value, colour theory, and ariel perspective, critiquing is not only educational for the artist whose work is being critiqued, but for the other artists in the group. Each month you will show and receive critiques on 2 paintings. My discussions and demos will be based on what the participating artists need at that time.
Listed below are this Master’s specialty skills. Join this Master’s group if you want to grow your skills in these areas.
