My Bio
I am a watercolor artist from rural Illinois. My work is highly realistic and detailed, and I specialize in portraits and still life. I love to paint anything that is shiny and complicated, and I try to take watercolor as far as it can go. I was a high school art teacher for 17 years, and I have been a professional painter since 2010. During this time I have had three solo exhibitions, became a signature member of the Illinois Watercolor Society, and even struck up a friendship with the late, great Roger Ebert, who spotted one of his books in a portrait of mine.

My latest video is here! Continuing my series of facial features, I've turned my attention to noses, and this nose belongs to a famous person. In the video I invited viewers to guess who he is, but if you're familiar with me at all, the answer is not too surprising. At the end of the video you'll see my cat Bun doing a cute little flippy thing.

Here's a tutorial I made a couple of weeks ago--I'm painting a beautiful blue-green eye with watercolor. The video has been sped up 8 times, and I've added instructional captions. I hope you enjoy!
